Building Professional Dispositions for Undergraduate Humanities Majors

updated: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 7:03pm
MLA 2023 // San Francisco, CA (5-8 Jan. 2023)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Professional development prepares humanities majors for post-baccalaureate success and undermines myths about weak career outcomes, yet too often, it remains an afterthough rather than an integral component of undergraduate curricula. Furthermore, increasing professional development opportunities for undergraduates also has programmatic benefits for recruitment and retention, not least becuase such programs better equip faculty and students to more effectively articulate the value of the humanites to public life, and the applicability of humanities across public, private, and volunteer sectors.

We are editing a Handbook of the Short Story in the World for Brill as part of the series Handbooks of Literary and Cultural Studies, and we are looking for chapters on some specific topics (see below). We are well aware that the chapters are broad in their scope. Some of these chapters should have a comparativist approach that covers several countries. For that reason, we are looking for potential contributors who have expertise in the field to write a synthetical approach to the topic while at the same time being analytical in the discussion of concrete short stories. Ideally a chapter should offer an overview of the topic, and then discuss three or four authors and/ or stories.
