Western Literature Association Session at MLA 2018 (CFP)

Western Literature Association Session at MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC)
Please consider submitting a proposal for our allied organization session with the MLA, and feel free to pass the cfp on to anyone who might be interested.
In keeping with the Presidential Theme, States of Insecurity, this proposed session seeks to explore the many ways in which insecurity, broadly defined, has shaped literatures of the North American West. Potential presentations should investigate how literatures aid in the work of stabilizing, destabilizing, exploring, challenging, interpreting, and otherwise navigating states of political, cultural, economic, and environmental insecurity. Both time period and genre are open as long as the works pertain to the North American West. Please submit a 250 word proposal to Dr. Kerry Fine by March 29thkerry.fine@asu.edu. Queries welcome.
