Call for Essay Proposals

We invite proposals for a volume in the MLA Options for Teaching series entitled Teaching Anglophone South Asian Women’s Writing, edited by Deepika Bahri and Filippo Menozzi.

This volume seeks meaningful responses to the following questions: What do we teach when we teach South Asian women’s writing? How do we teach it in a variety of contexts? How is our pedagogy changing in response to new developments: digital contexts, emergent genres, changes in the publishing industry, and growing anxiety about the underrepresentation of nonanglophone writing? Click Detailed Description for more information about the proposed volume.

Send 2-page CV and 500-word proposals for essays of 3,000–3,500 words to Proposals should include the name(s) of the writer(s) proposed for discussion and the argumentative thrust of the proposed article as well as clear pedagogic implications.

Everyone is invited to submit a resource relevant to the teaching of this material, including but not limited to syllabi, web sites, information about relevant articles or books and conference announcements.
