Indigenous Literatures and the Anthropocene (MLA 2020)

Deadline: March 20, 2019
Contact: Eric Gary Anderson
Email: eandersd@gmu.edu

For those who might be interested in going to the Modern Language Association convention…For MLA 2020 in Seattle, Melanie Benson Taylor and I are organizing a guaranteed session on Indigenous Literatures and the Anthropocene. How do Indigenous writers (in any time period) envision, theorize, reclaim Indigenous futures? How does Indigenous environmental or speculative writing respond to notions of the Anthropocene? 300-word abstracts to Melanie.B.Taylor@dartmouth.edu and eandersd@gmu.edu by March 20.

MLA 2020 meets January 9-12, 2020 in Seattle. If you’re not currently a member of MLA, you can still send us a proposal, but if your proposal is accepted, you’d need to become a member by April 7th.

Thanks for considering, and all best,
Eric
