The WMS is seeking submissions for the following guaranteed session for the 2019 MLA Convention:

Labor unrest and repression in late nineteenth-century Chicago, Paris, and London helped forge internationalist ties that laid the basis for the Second International. William Morris, Walter Crane, and their acolytes were very much a part of this trans-Atlantic radical political, literary, and artistic exchange of ideas. This panel explores the dynamics and consequences of their efforts, doing so in a way that more fully elucidates Morris’s trans-Atlantic influence on socialism’s rise in the West.

Submission instructions: send CV and a 300-word abstract for a 20-minute paper to KellyAnn Fitzpatrick (kellyann@gatech.edu) no later than 16 March 2018.
