CFP: Mark Twain Circle at 2025 MLA in New Orleans, LA (January 9-12)

The Mark Twain Circle invites papers to be presented at the 2025 MLA Convention  in New Orleans, January 9-12, 2025.

Papers may address any topic related to Mark Twain, his life, and his writings. The Circle particularly invites proposals from graduate students and early-career scholars and topics grounded in contemporary approaches and concerns—what we might classify as “Not Your Granddaddy’s Mark Twain”—but all relevant proposals are welcome.

Abstracts of 350-500 words should be sent to Judith Yaross Lee, Ohio University ([email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>), by March 15, 2024.
