M/MLA 2011 special panel: Anarchism and Culture

Culture has always occupied a central place in anarchists’ strategies of resistance and revolt. However, much of the history of anarchist cultural creativity remains poorly studied – obscured not only by political prejudices but by disciplinary boundaries and methodological blindnesses.

This panel invites exploration of anarchist culture (e.g., literature, film, and drama, but also sexuality and body culture, festival and song, etc.), especially dimensions of it resistant to customary analytical models and modes of research. Transnational and interdisciplinary approaches would be particularly welcome.

Send title and abstract to Jesse Cohn (jcohn@pnc.edu) by July 11.

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2011 Convention will be held at the Union Station Mariott in St. Louis, Missouri on November 3-6. See http://www.luc.edu/mmla/annualconvention.html for more information.
