Annual Convention of the Midwest Modern Language Association, November 9-12,
2006 in Chicago, Illinois.

In keeping with the informal theme of this year's MMLA conference ("High &
Low Culture"), we are seeking submissions for a proposed special section
entitled "Highbrow and Low-down: The Novels of Ishmael Reed." This special
session will not only explore various ways in which Reed's novels appear to
disregard traditional divisions between "high" and "low" culture, but also
ways in which these novels fashion cultural critique from the detritus of
popular culture.

CFP: Rereading the New Criticism (4/8/06; MSA 8, 10/19/06-10/22/06)

Friday, March 10, 2006 - 1:25pm

                                Rereading the New Criticism

Commentators such as Gerald Graff and Mark Jancovich have noted that, since
the demise in the 1960s of the New Critical hegemony, contemporary critical
discourse has often promoted misunderstandings of New Critical projects.
The image of the New Criticism as ahistorical formalism, they suggest,
misrepresents the New Critics' commitment to practices and epistemologies
distinctive to literature; their engagement with social and historical
issues; and their cultural politics. These recent critiques encourage
rereading the work of the New Critics from a new perspective-one that
maintains critical distance on received ideas about their methods.
