What is gained or lost when reading T.S. Eliot's _The Waste Land_ alongside early 1920s little magazines? Does such a reading enhance our perception of modernism? Please email 250-word abstracts by March 17 to Belinda Wheeler (bwheeler@siu.edu).
Please note: Papers can focus exclusively on Eliot's work or they use Eliot's work as a touchstone for their wider argument.
This call is for a proposed special session for this year's MLA - i.e. it has yet to be approved.
