deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 30, 2017

This panel invites papers on representations of social transformation in the Marvel Universe to be presented at South Central MLA’s 2017 annual convention held October 5-8th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Presenters should feel free to propose papers on a wide-range of topics. We are especially interested, however, in papers that explore the representation of trauma and/or violence as a necessary part of socially transformative practices. Proposed papers could consider, for instance, the trauma of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s terrigenesis or how Luke Cage’s body—often riddled with bullets—offers a challenge to the “All Lives Matter” movement.

Thorstein Veblen's The Higher Learning in America at 100 (MLA 2018)

updated: 
Monday, November 14, 2016 - 10:13am
Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 20, 2017

Thorstein Veblen's 1918 The Higher Learning in America: A Memorandum on the Conduct of Universities by Business Men presented one of the earliest anti-corporate critiques of university-industry relations. This panel will offer readings of his classic study in light of the changes in American universities over the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. What can we learn from Veblen's critique? Does his argument still hold up 100 years later, and, if so, how might we use it as a resource in our own struggles against austerity budgeting, labor casualization, and corporatization in our institutions?

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 21, 2016

The hard-boiled in crime and detective fiction is frequently associated with a nostalgia for an imagined white, working-class, American masculinity. Yet, women writers and characters also address the hard-boiled, often in order to modify, critique, or resituate it within cultural frameworks.
