Society for the Study of Southern Literature MLA 2024 Call for Papers

Given the presidential theme Celebration: Joy and Sorrow, this panel will explore the topic of “Black South Joy.”

So much of the popular discourse about the South, and about the experience of Blackness in the South particularly, revolves around narratives of white supremacist violence. As scholars of southern literature, we spend much of our time encountering Saidiya Hartman’s “scenes of subjection” in the works of both white and Black authors alike. And yet, even in the darkest moments, Black folks in the South have created rituals of celebration, not only as acts of resistance, but as reflections of the simple fact of their humanity.

Celebrating Virginia Woolf's Eighteenth Century

Proposal might consider aesthetics, visual and literary history, fashion and decor, print culture and/or printing technology, waxworks, politics, etc.

People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that's how they'll react. But if you say, 'We want peace, we want stability,' we can then do a lot of things that will contribute to the progress of our society.

MLA 2024: Special Session - Theatrical Performance in Literature

updated: 
Thursday, March 9, 2023 - 11:14pm
Alexia Mandla Ainsworth / MLA Special Session 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 20, 2023

This special session panel, for the 2024 MLA in Philadelphia, PA, will reflect on how performativity, acting, and theatre appear in writing. When we consider the novel, especially, how does theatre show its impact on authors and how do authors invoke theatrical performance or acting in a non-visual form? For texts with visual components, such as manga or illustrated stories, how do the images interface with the text to create an experience of performance for readers? When we see the theatre itself appear in literature, what is its role? When we see an amateur performance, such as Lovers' Vows in Austen's Mansfield Park, what does that say about how theatre is constructed in Austen's understanding of society?

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) serve a vital function within academia, particularly for the predominantly Black student body that these historic institutions serve. There are at least 74 HBCUs that offer degrees in English, Languages, or Literature, including 10 HBCUs that offer Master or Doctoral degrees in these subjects. Some of the leading scholars of our disciplines graduated from HBCUs with at least “9 percent of full-time Black faculty earned their doctorate degrees from HBCUs [with] more than half returning to HBCUs as faculty members” (Perna, 2001).
