This panel is a part of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) Convention, April 7-10, 2011, New Brunswick, New Jersey. Panel Chairs: Virginia Tiger and Nick Parker. Host Institution: Rutgers University.

This panel will seek to trace the progress of Golding studies in recent years. Can Golding be read as a constituent of popular cultural movements of his period, such as the Angry Young Men? Does he fit only with Lessing's fabular discourse? Papers studying any aspect of Golding's work, his cultural ties in Britain from the fifties to the eighties, the reasons for his relative obscurity, and/or his contribution to literary studies more broadly are welcomed. Send 500wd (max) abstracts to with subject line 'Golding Panel.' Please include your name and institutional affiliation. Also specify any A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee with registration). See for more information.

Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable. Do not accept a slot if you may cancel to present on another session.
