CALL FOR PAPERS
MLA/LA Special Session
January 6-9, 2011
"Sonnetry and Modernity"
An MLA/LA special session invites proposals exploring the originality and
modernity of sonnetry, including experiment, tradition, iconography,
typography, forms, occasions, locations, and questions of genre for a
roundtable discussion, January 6-9, 2011, in Los Angeles. This session
considers the following questions: Is sonnetry congruent with modernity or
does the choice of sonnetry inevitably signal joining a long tradition? What
forms and reforms do late sonneteers project in order to seem "modern" to
their own generation? And in the always-felt command of "modernity," what
new or fresh attention do sonneteers need from us? How do sonneteers answer
the "formal charges" often raised by critics against the genre? Please send
2-page abstracts and a brief cv by March 12, 2010 to: Gillian Huang-Tiller
at gch7u at uvawise.edu.
