Seeking paper abstracts for a special panel session on the theme of "the human" at the MLA conference in Seattle, WA on January 9-12, 2020. Each panelist will present a 15- to 20-minute paper that helps to theorize and contextualize current debates about the name, length, and roles of the human and the plantation in the formation of the present epoch. Open to any topic, especially papers on 19th-21st c. plantation literature from South Asia, Latin America, and Africa (but open to other regions and a broad interpretation of plantations as well). Please send a 250-word abstract, CV, and any queries to Dr. Isadora Wagner, West Point (isadora.wagner@westpoint.edu) and Dr. Natalie Aikens, Wabash College (aikensn@wabash.edu) by March 18th, 2019.
