Shaw and His Contemporaries
Special Session for 2008 MLA

"The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who
writes about all people and all time."
--The Sanity of Art (1895)

This special session for the 2008 MLA convention in San Francisco seeks
papers on Bernard Shaw and his authorial and/or personal relations with
his contemporaries. Given the length and variety of Shaw's life, the
idea of "Shaw and His Contemporaries" should be broadly construed. Among
other more obvious topics, interest in Shaw's relationship to modernism
and individual modernists, in non-Western contemporaries, and in figures
outside literary, dramatic, and theatrical contexts are all welcome.
Please send one-page abstract and brief CV by 15 March 2008 to Charles
