CFP: [American] American Studies Beyond the Center-Periphery Model (M/MLA)

updated: 
Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 12:01pm
Jason Malikow

Recent work on global circulatory systems has placed a center-periphery
model of global socioeconomic flows under a lot of scrutiny, frequently
asking whether or to what end this model remains relevant. This accepted
M/MLA panel seeks papers addressing what functions the center-periphery
model serves for an understanding of the circulation of texts, bodies,
ideas, especially in relation to the field of American studies.

CFP: [American] Modernist Ecologies (4/30/08; MSA X, 11/13/08-11/16/08)

Anne Raine

Douglas Mao has argued that modernism is “foundationally ecological” in
its concern with the material object as a “synecdoche of endangered
nature.” In recent years, a number of scholars have begun to examine
modernist writers’ complex engagements with nature, environment, the
animal, or the object-world. Yet modernism’s ecologies, like its
politics, are embedded in the contradictions of its time in complex ways
that have yet to be fully explored; and the importance of ecology in
literary modernism has yet to be fully recognizedâ€"as indicated by the
absence of a chapter on the subject in handbooks like the recent
Cambridge Companion to American Modernism.
