Call for Abstracts

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 under representation of nonanglophone writing? Click Detailed Description for more information about the proposed volume.

Send 2-page CVs and %00-word proposals for essays of 3,000-3,500 words to deepika.bahri@emory.edu.  Please use the subject line “SAW proposal.” Proposals should include the proposed essay title, name(s) of the writer(s) proposed for discussion, the argumentative thrust of the proposed article, and clear pedagogic implications.
