CFP: Modernist Ethics (MSA 13 Buffalo, NY; 6-9 October, 2011; deadline April 1 2011)
I am seeking papers that address how modernist fiction articulates ethics, challenges existing ethical models, and explores areas of ethical ambiguity. Possibilities:
• tensions or continuities between early-twentieth-century ethicists (e.g., Spencer, Moore) and the ethics of modernist fiction
• tensions or continuities between modernist fiction and contemporary ethics (e.g., Levinas, Derrida, Badiou, Zizek; or Nussbaum, Rorty, et al.)
• the ethics of particular writers or even of particular works – what do they posit, what leave unsaid or indicate is unsayable?

American Literary Tourism

American Literary Tourism (Anthology)

Literary tourism has a long history in American culture. From visits to the grave of the fictional eighteenth-century Charlotte Temple, to the restoration of Salem's House of the Seven Gables as a turn of the century settlement house and tourist attraction, to competing twentieth-century Faulkner Festivals, literary tourism has become ingrained in American culture. Its currency is evident in the recent success of such events as the Zora Neale Hurston festival, held up as an exemplary example of how community revitalization can be achieved through the strategic development of cultural heritage tourism.

ChLA Sponsored Session for MLA 2012 Conference

No(bodies): Ghost Children in Juvenile Literature

This panel seeks to explore the figure of the ghost child in children's and young adult literature. Trapped in a permanent state of childhood/adolescence, the ghost child, through its lack of body, does not physically mature, thereby experiencing a stasis that is both tragic and frightening; however, in many texts the ghost child undergoes some type of transformation that allows it to "grow up" in perhaps alternative ways. Papers might consider, but are not limited to, what the ghost child suggests about the following:

Jill E. Anderson

Seeking papers to fill out a panel proposal on Richard Brautigan's work for MLA 2012.

This panel seeks to explore any aspect of Richard Brautigan's work--poetry or prose. His work has been largely ignored by the academic community so I seek people with an interest in Brautigan who wish to recover his work. Your readings could take any number of angles, but personally I am most interested in ecocritical, historical, and gender studies readings.
