Milton Society of America

The Milton Society of America is proposing this session for the 2023 MLA Annual Convention. This panel considers the present and future states of Milton scholarship when tenure-track positions in general and positions for Miltonists in particular have become scarce. We invite proposals that consider different aspects of writing about and teaching Milton in our present working conditions. Topics may include emergent forms of interdisciplinarity; putting Milton in dialogue with a broader range of writers; research grants and other sources of funding for Milton-related scholarship; teaching and writing about Milton in institutions beyond the research university or the four-year college. Please send a 250-word abstract and an abbreviated cv, no later than March 15, to Eric Song at
