This is a call for papers for the permanent MMLA Bibliography and
Textual Studies Panel. The panel will focus on Transatlantic Studies
and the Book.

This panel seeks to investigate how material texts can contribute to
ongoing discussions about the formation of nationalism and the
transmission of culture. From the study of international copyright law
to the altered interpretive possibilities of a reprint edition,
transatlantic book studies can alter our understanding of political
and cultural frameworks. Papers are welcomed from a variety of time
periods that participate in discussions of books? production,
distribution, and/or reception across national borders. Preference
will be given to papers that address issues of international relations
and/or national identity.

Please send abstracts of 400 words or less by April 16th, 2007 to
Jessica DeSpain, Univ. of Iowa,
