CFP: Mark Twain Circle at MLA Conference in Washington, D.C. (January 6-9, 2022)

The Mark Twain Circle of America is calling for proposals for the 2022 MLA, scheduled for January 6-9, in Washington, D.C.  

Session Title: “Not Your Granddaddy’s Mark Twain” 

The Mark Twain Circle invites timely, innovative proposals from transdisciplinary approaches. We are interested in discussions that foreground the social construction of human identities, intersections, and interactions such as (but not exclusive to) Queer, Non-human, Feminist, Trauma, Eco-Critical, Posthumanist, Colonial or Critical Race Studies and that show how Mark Twain’s work reflects those states of being.  

Send 2 page proposals to Henry Wonham ([email protected]) by 3/1/2021.
