CFP: Special Cluster on 9/11 Literature in Modern Language Studies

Articles of approximately 6000-10,000 words on any aspect of 9/11 literature (including pop culture and pedagogy) will be considered for an upcoming special cluster in Modern Language Studies tentatively scheduled for summer 2011.

An initial wave of literature, art, and film is emerging that explicitly responds to and reflects on 9/11, the War on Terror, or the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. This special cluster of MLS will explore 9/11 literature and culture—specific works, larger thematic or formal trends, or the teaching of 9/11 literature and culture. Articles that encompass a comparative analysis are welcome, as are articles that take a wider view to include other media, such as visual or performing arts, or an interdisciplinary approach.

Please send a 6,000-10,000 word article (including notes and bibliography) and a brief bio by April 15, 2010 to jdymond@spfldcol.edu. For more information on Modern Language Studies, visit http://www.nemla.org/publications/mls/index.html
