Papers sought for a 2014 MLA Convention panel on "South Asian Literatures - Without English," sponsored by the Division on Comparative Studies in 20th-Century Literature. While the majority of literature in South Asia is composed in indigenous languages, reception of these literatures (e.g., of India) in North America has focused overwhelmingly on authors who write in English. This panel seeks to bring more attention to the non-English side of South Asian literary production. Papers may deal with single authors, movements/periods/genres, literary relations, or with the meta-question of the critical reception of South Asia adumbrated above.
Panel will take place at the January 2014 MLA Convention in Chicago. Abstracts of 250 words or less, plus CV, to Thomas O. Beebee (email@example.com) by 17 December, for consideration at our Division meeting at the 2013 MLA.
