A CFP for MLA 2014 (Chicago):

"Woolf and London's Colonial Writers"

This proposed panel investigates literary, political, social, and spatial connections between Virginia Woolf and contemporaneous London-affiliated writers from the British colonies. Papers may consider such figures as Mulk Raj Anand, Mahatma Gandhi, C.L.R. James, Una Marson, and Jean Rhys (to name but a few) and address intersections through the Hogarth Press, mutual friends and social circles, shared literary and political investments, literary responses, and common spaces. Please send a 300-word abstract and brief scholarly biography to organizer Elizabeth F. Evans, elizabeth.evans at nd.edu, by March 8. 

Please note that this panel, with panelists, will be proposed by the International Virginia Woolf Society but that it must be accepted by the MLA Program Committee.

Best wishes,
Elizabeth Evans
