New Work in 16th-Century French Literature and Culture
The MLA Executive Committee solicits proposals for 20-minute papers presenting new work in French 16th-century literature and culture. Proposals that feature ongoing work in preparation for publication (monograph or essay) are particularly welcome. Please send 200-word abstracts to Leah Chang (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 3/15/2016.
The Vibrant Renaissance: Matter, Objects, and the Nonhuman in Early Modern France
Recent work on new materialisms and political ecologies of matter and things is reframing how we think about matter, about its dull-ness or vibrancy (Bennett), about the agency of assemblages (Deleuze and Guattari, Latour), and about nonhuman objects (Harman, Bryant). Proposals sought for 7-minute position papers for a roundtable at the MLA about the connections between such fields/theories and Early Modern France. The committee would be particularly interested in propositions that theorize what the Early Modern period, i.e. a period before geology, before certain disciplinary splits, can bring to contemporary theory. Please send 200-word abstracts to Phillip John Usher (email@example.com) by 3/15/2016
