Ends of Time: Apocalypses Ancient and Modern (MLA 2011)

updated: 
Monday, January 4, 2010 - 3:46pm
Classics and Modern Literature Discussion Group, MLA

This panel, organized by the Classics and Modern Literature Discussion Group, will explore the ways and means of eschatological pronouncements from antiquity to the present. The apocalypse is an ultimatum that both threatens and consoles; the etymology of the word ("uncovering") points toward future and past alike. The apocalypse marks time while disrupting its continuity; it holds the present hostage to a final aim, which gains reality from what is adjourned or lost in anticipation. How does the apocalypse give voice to the oppressed? How does it militate for revenge? Under what circumstances does the apocalyptic event arise and by what detours does it, as a performance, pass from a symbolic sphere into fulfillment?

Queer Ecology
ASLE panel at MLA (6-9 Jan. 2011 in L.A.)

Proposals are invited for presentations that explore the relationship between ecocriticism and queer theory. How do ecocriticism and queer theory mutually reinforce and/or challenge each other? What underlying assumptions in ecocritical theory are called into question by queer theory, and vice versa? What does it look like to "queer" ecocriticism? What does it look like to "green" queer theory? What is the relationship between queer ecology and ecofeminism?

How do particular literary texts illustrate or dramatize answers to these questions? How do literary texts express a "queer ecology"? Paper proposals may address any or a combination of these questions.

Pulp Fiction and the Environment
ASLE panel at the MLA (Jan. 6-9, 2011 in L.A.)

Proposals are invited for presentations that examine works of pulp fiction—e.g. fantasy, science fiction, westerns, mysteries, thrillers, romance novels—for their environmental and/or ecological significance. What are the strengths and/or weaknesses of pulp fiction as a medium? What is the relationship between green pulp fiction and more traditional environmental literature (such as H. D. Thoreau's Walden)? How does green pulp fiction complicate or enrich what it means to practice ecocriticism?

Paper proposals may address any or a combination of these questions.

Abolitionist Literature (ALA in San Francisco, May 27-30, 2010) deadline January 22, 2010

updated: 
Monday, January 4, 2010 - 12:44pm
Martha Sledge

I am soliciting paper proposals for a proposed panel at the American Literature Association in San Francisco May 27-30, 2010. In this panel I hope to examine abolitionist literature other than the "canonical" slave narrative texts. Papers may approach individual texts or be theoretical in nature, exploring the category of "political" literature in this context.

Please submit 500-word abstract along with a brief CV by January 22, 2010 to msledge@mmm.edu.
