English III (English Literature After 1900) Permanent Section: “Fame,
Infamy, and Obscurity in Post-WWII British Fiction”

50th Annual Midwest Modern Language Association Convention
November 13-16, 2008
The Minneapolis Marriott City Center
Minneapolis, Minnesota

This year’s English Literature After 1900 permanent session will explore
the 2008 M/MLA conference theme of fame/infamy through a concentration on
British fiction since 1945. We invite papers that might approach this
topic by examining any of the various manifestations of fame such as
celebrity culture, prize and award culture, notoriety, literary feuds,
book reviews, and other modes of fame and publicity. Prospective panelists
might also examine postwar British writers who remain largely unknown.

Proposals (of 200-250 words) should be sent by 15 April 2008 to M. Hunter
Hayes at Hunter_Hayes_at_tamu-commerce.edu.
