Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter 2018-2019 issue.

I am especially interested in reviews of primary sources (including scholarly editions, contemporary literature, art, film, comic books, visual and popular culture), pedagogical works, and hypertext publications. However, reviews are no longer restricted to these categories.

Graduate students are welcome to contribute to the journal. Please submit your review electronically (as a Word attachment) to Randy Robertson, Reviews Editor of MLS, at robertson@susqu.edu

One Writer’s Beginnings Reconsidered

2019 marks the 35th anniversary of Eudora Welty’s memoir One Writer’s Beginnings (Harvard UP, 1984). Loved and admired by a diverse readership, this book centers on the circumstances that sparked Welty's passion to become a writer. Originating from her presentations as inaugural speaker in Harvard’s Massey Lectures in American Studies (then the "Lectures in the History of American Civilization” ), the book chapters are based on her three lectures --“Listening,” “Learning to See,” and “Finding a Voice” --and they focus on Welty’s childhood and family life in Jackson, Mississippi.

Eudora Welty Society Call for Papers

In 1944, Eudora Welty remarked “if you click your camera at something, people from nowhere run up and ask ‘Why did you take that?’”

The motivational impulse, artistic composition, cultural context, and sociological importance of Welty’s photographs have all received scholarly attention since the 1971 first publication of her photobook One Time, One Place. Our 2019 ALA panel invites further new work on Welty’s photography.  Proposals may include the relation of her photography to biography, literature, art history, to photographic technique, genre, and history, as well as to such topics as memory, location, and racial representation.
