MLA Special Session proposal - Reconsidering the Transnational Turn - 3/24

updated: 
Tuesday, March 3, 2009 - 1:50pm
John Patrick Leary, Wayne State University

In recent years, a "transnational" approach to literary history has become popular. This approach criticizes the supposed naturalness of some of the borders, boundaries, and binaries that define our political affiliations and have structured—some would argue limited—our cultural histories. The "transnational turn" has taken a variety of forms and includes other mode of cultural critique, like "borderlands" readings and Atlantic world studies. Yet even as the transnational turn has become institutionalized—as indicated by the increasing numbers of English literature job listings advertising this specialty—it still has the ring of an insurgent challenge to national traditions of literary studies.

My name is Melissa Whitney. I am the session chair for the special topics session "Mothers in Literature of Women of Color in the Twentieth Century" at this year's RMMLA conference in Snowbird, Utah.
I am looking for mother-daughter relationships in particular but the session is not limited to that relationship. I am encouraging papers who deal with how mothers mother and the relationship between a mother's mothering and the psychological impact it has on her child, but any subject matter connected to mothers in literature of women of color will be considered. While my particular focus is on African American Women, I also encourage papers and research on literature of Chicana, Latina, Native American women etc.
