Call for Papers: Celebrating Mark Twain
The Mark Twain Circle invites 250-350 word proposals for 20-minute presentations at the 2024 MLA Convention in Philadelphia (January 4-7, 2024).
Topics may address any theme or work(s) in Mark Twain’s long life and career, but papers responding to the convention theme, “Celebration: Joy and Sorrow,” are particularly welcome, considering how it echoes the clincher of “A True Story, Repeated Word for Word as I Heard It” (1874): “Oh, no, Misto C—, I hain’t had no trouble. An’ no joy!”
Panelists should be members of the Circle at the time of the convention; details at <https://www.marktwaincircle.org/join-renew>.
Deadline for submissions: March 15, 2023, to Judith Yaross Lee, Ohio University, [email protected]
