Subject: MLA 2021 CFP: Active Readership: Media, Public, Community - due March 15 Modern Language Association convention 2021 (https://www.mla.org/Convention/MLA-2021) Panel on scholarly editions: Active reasding (https://scholarlyeditions.mla.hcommons.org/cfp-active-readership-media-mla21/) Hi All, Readers of this list might be interested in submitting a proposal for our guaranteed roundtable at the 2021 MLA in Toronto. For this MLA Convention 2021 guaranteed panel for the MLA Committee on Scholarly Editions, the participants of this roundtable will consider active reading widely, within literary circles and within the media, public, and communities. The topic is inspired by recent discoveries of interactive engagement over time, from Milton's annotations on a Shakespeare First Folio (https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/john-miltons-annotated-copy- shakespeares-first-folio-180973165/) and T.S. Eliot's recently-released posthumous comments (https://www.wsj.com/articles/letters-from-the-grave-11580337803) (Statement, https://tseliot.com/foundation/statement-by-t-s-eliot-on-the-opening-of-the- emily-hale-letters-at-princeton/) on Emily Hale's letters (https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/emily-hale-was-ts-eliots- confidanteand-more-newly-unsealed-letters-suggest-180973908/) to blog (Emily Hale Archive blog, https://tseliotsociety.wildapricot.org/news) and media commentary on both, as well as more creative relationships, e.g., between Instagram poets and those their followers/readers (see Berens, https://electronicbookreview.com/essay/e-lits-1-hit-is-instagram-poetry-e- literature/). This committee is also hosting a second guaranteed panel on 'Social Reading in Pedagogical Practice.' Please submit abstracts (~300 words) and 75-word biography by March 15. Please include your technical requirements (data project, etc.) We strive to offer a diverse roundtable (approximately 5 presenters) representing all types of institutions and perspectives. Proposals will be selected and presenters notified before April 1. All presenters must be members of the MLA prior to April 1, 2020. Email submission as an attachment to: Katherine D.
