We invite proposals for a special session on Critical University Studies that we will propose for the 2011 Modern Language Association Convention, January 6-9, 2011, in Los Angeles.

Is there now a body of work, like Critical Legal Studies, that constitutes Critical University Studies? How would you define or describe it?

Please send 250-500 word abstracts and your CV to both Heather Steffen ( and Jeffrey J. Williams ( by March 10, 2010.
