Global Hawthorne: Readership, Reception, Adaptation
Scholars and readers around the world continue to engage Hawthorne’s work, and talented writers continue to adapt, re-write, and respond to Hawthorne.  For MLA 2023, we invite papers that discuss any aspect of Hawthorne’s global afterlife.  Papers might consider contemporary works from outside the U.S. (in any media or mode), translations of Hawthorne’s works, international reception and scholarship, current global readership, or the future of Hawthorne abroad.  Scholars specializing in other periods and fields are encouraged to submit proposals.
