CFP: Aldous Huxley: Fifty Years After (NeMLA 2012; abstracts due 9/30/11)
2012 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Aldous Huxley's final novel, _Island_ (1962), and 2013 will observe the half-century since his death. The panel session will reexamine Huxley's work (of any genre) in light of its influence on and relevance to contemporary culture, ideas, and movements. The panel's scope intends to be broad and inclusive, to encourage new North American scholarly attention on Huxley and his works. Of particular interest are new approaches that place Huxley in dialogue with other artists and intellectuals within and beyond Anglo-American traditions.
