This panel invites writers to consider how gossip and its related forms
negotiate the distance between high and low culture and public and private
spheres. Does gossip function as a conservative or subversive force? What
happens when scandalous talk circulates in print? How do "high" literary
genres (such as biography) mimic the content or strategies of "low" forms
(such as scandal sheets)? Does gossip function as a trope or a threat for
authorship? How can scandal be commodified--as news, talk shows, published
diaries, scandal sheets, even blackmail? When a secret becomes public
knowledge, whose story is it? We hope these questions serve as a

Original CFP Below:

Commensurate with Experience: Work and the Next
Generation of English Scholars
 
Citing findings from the National Center for
Educational Statistics (NCES), Louis Menand points out
in his 2005 contribution to MLA's _Profession_ that
between 1970 and 2001 the number of English majors has
dropped, roughly, by a third; however "the system is
producing the same number of doctorates in English
that it was producing back in 1970. These Ph.D.s have
trouble getting tenure-track jobs because fewer
students major in English, and therefore the demand
for English literature specialists has declined"
(12-13).
