CFP: Deadline for MLA Volume on Wharton Extended to 1/8/18

The deadline to contribute to the survey and send a proposal to a Modern Language Association (MLA) volume, Approaches to Teaching the Works of Edith Wharton, is extended to January 8, 2018.

You can contribute to the volume by completing a survey about your experiences of teaching Wharton’s works. The names of all contributors to the survey will be mentioned in the published volume.
