updated:

Ann Marie Fallon

How can literary theory inform community based learning/service
learning? Or vice versa, how does community service transform our
assumptions about literature and the literary aspects of everyday
life? In what ways do current readings in cultural studies extend to
the question of civitas? We are seeking submissions [essays,
narratives, reflections, position papers] for a edited volume on the
interrelationship between literary studies and community-based
learning. We would like to include examples of classroom projects,
reflections on practice, theoretical pieces and close readings.

editing and redesign. Articles and reviews in MLS have always reflected the
eclectic interests and the strong research profiles of NEMLA members, and
