MLA Panel 2008
Sponsored by Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society

_Renaissance Medievalisms in Performance_

As Chris Brooks argues, the Renaissance inherited the Middle Ages both as
a material presence and as a complex of ideas and feelingsâ€"real and
imaginary. This panel seeks papers that examine how Renaissance
communities used performance to construct, evaluate, mythologize, or re-
imagine the Middle Ages. Although we can find evidence of
such “medievalism” in play texts, we might also identify it in staging
choices, patronage, and other aspects of the theatrical enterprise.
Papers that address non-English contexts are welcome.

CFP: [Theory] Collection of essays on ethical literary criticism

Alan Goff

An academic publisher is interested in a collection of essays about
ethical criticism. As the editor, I envision the book having several
thematic centers: the responsibilities of readers, the obligations of
writers, the legacy of Wayne Booth, connections to disciplines other than
literary criticism (history, law, philosophy, religion), narrative theory
and ethical theory, and postmodernism and the ethics of reading. Please
contact me about providing a proposal for a chapter.

Several recent landmarks in publication have encouraged serious study of
Louisa May Alcott’s beloved masterpiece, most notably the 2003 Norton
Critical Edition of Little Women, and the 2005 Library of America edition
of the March family trilogy. The Louisa May Alcott Society welcomes
proposals for brief presentations for a roundtable discussion of Little
Women and pedagogy. Possible subjects include:
• To what age is the novel best taughtâ€"elementary school, high
school, undergraduate college, graduate school?
• What contextual materials help illuminate the novel?
• In which subjects does Little Women instruct its readers and how
does Alcott deliver this instruction?

CFP: [American] The Concord Reformers (1/24; ALA 5/22-25)

Mary Shelden

Louisa May Alcott was a second-generation reformer in her family; she was
schooled in agitation for women’s rights and the abolition of slavery, as
well as other reforms including religion, diet, medicine, and labor, by
the diligent efforts of her parents and their famed circle of friendsâ€"and
perhaps even more by a larger, less public network surrounding this
circle. The Louisa May Alcott Society welcomes papers addressing what
Freda Baum has termed “the scarlet strand of reform” in Alcott’s work and
life, and in the larger circles in which she learned to value the
reformist spirit. Send abstracts by 24 January 2008 to: Mary Shelden,

Papers for this proposed special session will consider the significance of
the audiobook. The growing popularity of audiobooks over the last decade
means that literary critics may no longer be able to turn a blind eye -- or
a deaf ear, in this case -- to the ways in which oral delivery influences
the reception of literature. This panel will explore the extent to which
the audiobook not only enables us to hear literature but to hear it in new
ways. While audiobooks are still responsible for only a small fraction of
the total book publishing market, their use is among the minority of
reading practices found to be increasing as the number of overall readers
