CFP MMLA Panel

 

Creative Writing: Prose

 

The Creative Writing: Prose panel will discuss emerging brief prose forms, which may include prose poems, micro or flash fiction, flash creative nonfiction, excerpts from flash sequences, and hybrid or blended short prose pieces.  Panelists will offer a brief statement defining the type of brief fiction s/he is writing, then read examples from their work by way of illustration.  The intention is for this panel to be informative to those attendees new to brief prose, while concurrently being interesting and enjoyable for readers familiar to brief prose.  Questions and a lively discussion to follow.

"Minority art, vernacular art, is marginal art.  Only on the margins does growth occur." --Joanna Russ.

Aesthetics and Form in Victorian Art, Literature, and Culture

October 28, 2017, 8:30-5:30pm 

“It is not enough that it has the Form, if it have not also the power and life. It is not enough that it has the Power, if it have not the form. We must therefore inquire into each of these characters successively; and determine first, what is the Mental Expression, and secondly, what the Material Form.” John Ruskin, The Nature of Gothic IV.183.

Call for Papers: Special Issue, The Comparatist
Topic: Figuring Race
General Editor: Zahi Zalloua (Whitman College)

We welcome contributions that examine the notion of race in comparative studies and literary theory. How do we imagine, represent, and construct race today? What role does race play in the Humanities? How do we talk about race in an ideologically color blind society? How does racial difference relate to other type of differences? Can we foreground race while avoiding both the pitfalls of identity politics and the depoliticization of race by neoliberalism? Topics of interest could include:

Black Lives Matter

Critical Race Theory

Solidarity Movements

Intersectionality

Cosmopolitanism
