MLA 2019 panel sponsored by the International James Joyce Foundation


The International James Joyce Foundation invites paper proposals for its 2019 MLA session in Chicago.  The session topic is Joyce and women’s legal and civil rights.  Papers might discuss marriage, divorce, inheritance, suffrage, or any other aspect of women's rights in Joyce's work.  In light of contemporary feminist movements, proposals might consider Joyce's place in our current debates or Joyce's influence in similar debates of his time.  Papers that discuss historical and legal aspects of Joyce's work in reference to women's rights are particularly welcome.    


Please submit proposals, attached as Word documents, to Dr. Claire Culleton at by Saturday, February 24, 2018.  Please include contact information and a brief bio. Presenters must be members of the MLA and available to attend the conference, which will run next year from January 3-6.
