asks, “What you working on?” for its third interdisciplinary conference in
English studies. We are each “Writing into the Profession” as we employ

opportunity to explore and enact just what it means to be part of the

Anne E. B. Coldiron

This interdisciplinary session planned for Renaissance Society of America
2009 invites papers that link visual and verbal elements in specific
texts to broader concerns in 16th-century print culture. In 16th-century
literary texts in England and on the continent, how do visual and verbal
elements work together in the new medium to create new aesthetics and
modes of meaning? How do printers, artists, authors, and translators
collaborate to deploy the new technology in visual and verbal forms? How
does a new means of production reshape the interaction of the visual and
verbal? We welcome other such questions and the treatment of specific
subjects (e.g. the use of woodcuts, engravings, printers’ devices,

CFP: [Bibliography] MLA 2008 Special Session: Transatlantic Sensations

updated: 
Tuesday, February 12, 2008 - 4:44pm
John Cyril Barton

In recent years, nineteenth-century sensationalism has attracted much
attention among scholars of both American and British literature and
culture. Sensation literature, however, has yet to be examined in a
transatlantic context, despite the fact that the genre emerged within a
transnational publication system that shaped its development from the
early 1800s to the end of the century. This proposed MLA special session
seeks not only to map the development of the “sensation novel”â€"the
nineteenth century’s best-selling genre on both sides of the Atlanticâ€"but
also to account for the emergence of a new kind of writing that informed

Matt Rubery

Papers for this proposed special session will consider the significance of
the audiobook. The growing popularity of audiobooks over the last decade
means that literary critics may no longer be able to turn a blind eye -- or
a deaf ear, in this case -- to the ways in which oral delivery influences
the reception of literature. This panel will explore the extent to which
the audiobook not only enables us to hear literature but to hear it in new
ways. While audiobooks are still responsible for only a small fraction of
the total book publishing market, their use is among the minority of
reading practices found to be increasing as the number of overall readers
