Science and Fiction: Literary Darwinism MMLA Conference November 7-10, 2013
The 55th Annual Convention of the Midwest Modern Language Association will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center from November 7-10, 2013.
I am seeking papers that explore the links between evolutionary psychology/biology and fiction. In what ways might evolutionary theory assist or hinder an understanding and analysis of fiction?
Papers might also examine fiction after Darwin.
Please send a 250-word abstract and a brief C.V. by May 31st to Kevin Swafford, firstname.lastname@example.org
