From Jennifer Andrews:
A heads up to all of our colleagues who work on comparative Canadian/American literatures– just posted a Call for Papers for a Special Session at the MLA in New York City in January 2018 and we are looking for submissions…here is the info (apologies for the brevity but MLA insists on it!):
Seeking papers that explore the idea of “Canadian exceptionalism” in relation to North American literatures. Please submit a 250-word abstract and short bio by 15 March. Jennifer Andrews (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Rachel Bryant (email@example.com).
