In keeping with this year’s MMLA theme, “Consuming Cultures,” I welcome papers that address issues of consumption in nineteenth-century British literature and culture. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to: print culture and readership; leisure activities; studies in food, medicine, plants, agriculture, and animals; consumption vs. production; consuming identities and bodies; and the intersections between postcolonialism, imperialism, and capitalism. Please send a 250-word abstract and a brief bio. by April 5th, 2018 to Bailey Shaw at bshaw@siu.edu
