Dear colleagues and friends,

Let me take this opportunity to refresh the call for papers for the EWS panel at the next Modern Language Association (MLA) Conference in Philadelphia (January 4-7, 2024). The deadline for proposals has been extended to March 20, 2023; please do consider submitting a proposal and sharing the call with interested parties.

With many thanks and all my good wishes,



Edith Wharton Society CFP (MLA 2024)–Edith Wharton and Celebration

The EWS invites proposals on any form of celebration in Wharton’s work (music; performance; dance; emotion; dis/enchantment; play; commemoration; recovery; communal sentiment; rituals of joy and sorrow, e.g., weddings, funerals).

Please submit titled proposals (approx. 350 words) and a brief CV by March 20, 2023 to Myrto Drizou (myrto.drizou@boun.edu.tr). Please include any requests for AV needs in your proposal. Scholars whose proposals are accepted must be members in good standing of the Edith Wharton Society by the time of the conference.
