Proposal for a Special Session at MLA 2022
In keeping with the MLA 2022 presidential theme of multilingualism, the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP) invites proposals for a special session on multilingualism in nineteenth-century periodicals and periodicals studies. How does periodicals studies confront monolingual biases or move beyond them? What research examples, collaborations, institutional conditions, or teaching practices facilitate or hinder multilingual periodicals scholarship and, by turn, the widening of nineteenth-century studies?
Submit 250-word abstracts to email@example.com by March 24, 2021. Applicants do not need to be RSVP members to submit — and feel encouraged to circulate this call to scholars and teachers in other fields.
Accepted panelists must be (or become) members of MLA and be able to attend the MLA convention in Washington, DC in January 2022.
