MMLA American Literature Before 1870

updated: 
Tuesday, April 10, 2018 - 9:01am
Midwest Modern Language Association Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 15, 2018

Please consider submitting to the American Literature I: Literature Before 1870 session for this year’s MMLA conference, which will be held in Kansas City, MO., November 15-18, 2018. The overall theme of the conference is “Consuming Cultures,” the inspiration for which comes partly from Kyla Wazana Tompkins’ research on racism in terms of food cultures in nineteenth century U.S. literature. As is noted in the general call for papers, “Looking at the disturbing correlations of ‘food and flesh,’ she notes, ‘the evolution of eating cultures across this period opens up new areas of inquiry into the alignment between bodies and bodies politic’” (7-8). American literature before 1870 is suggestive of multiple variations on this broad theme.
