Major and Minor Works in World Literature--a roundtable at the annual NeMLA convention 

March 23-26, 2017, Baltimore 

This roundtable is organized by NeMLA world literature working group as a yearly forum for discussing theoretical and historical issues, pedagogy and curriculum, and new directions in the field of world literature. We invite world literature scholars and practitioners to take part in the meaningful dialogue on the term "world literature" and its relation to the fields of postcolonial and comparative literature, as well as to share their approaches to teaching specific courses or curriculum building. This year's theme is "major and minor works in world literature," but proposals on other topics are welcome as well. 

NOTE: NeMLA guidelines allow participant to present at a panel/seminar + a roundtable. 

Please submit your abstract via NeMLA system:
