I

In keeping with this year’s MMLA Convention theme, “Art and Activism,” I welcome papers that address social/political activism in nineteenth-century British literature and culture. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to: writers as social critics; the Victorian social problem novel; radical lyric and narrative representations; Aesthetes, Decadents, and the idea of “Art for Art’s sake”; and humanists, humanitarians, and social activists in life and fiction.

Please send a 250-word abstract and a brief bio. by April 5th, 2017 to Bailey Shaw at bshaw@siu.edu.

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC) session seeks papers that address the relationship between Catholicism and English Gothic literature in ways that move beyond simplistic observations of the genre’s use of anti-Catholic tropes. Especially welcome are papers that situate Gothic literature in the history of English Catholicism or which approach the religious content and contexts of Gothic literature from “post-secular” points of view. Papers might examine anything from 18th- and early 19th-century Catholicism’s influence on the rise of Gothic literature, to the lingering anti-Catholicism (or, conversely, Catholic nostalgia) in 21st-century Gothic literature and/or film, or anything in between.
