The Comparative Literature section of the MMLA invites proposals for papers that engage with any aspect of this year's conference theme, "Post-Now." Building on the conference CFP's proposal to discuss the role of humanities in imagining a different future, this section asks these corollary questions: What is the role of comparative literature in these changing times? How can comparative perspectives and critical theory confront the most critical challenges in the 21st century? How should we imagine our roles as teachers and scholars of comparative literature when national and ethical boundaries are being deconstructed and reconstructed?

Please submit abstracts to Fontaine Lien at or The deadline has been extended to May 1, 2022.
