CFPs for MLA 2019

The Doris Lessing Society’s calls for papers for the 2019 MLA Convention in Chicago are now posted! We are looking for contributors to two sessions.

The first is “Celebrating Doris Lessing’s Centennial” — our first recognition of the upcoming year as the 100th anniversary of Lessing’s birth! Submission deadline and contact details are here.

The second is “Doris Lessing and Other Writers: Doris’s Daughters,” where we hope to evaluate Lessing’s impact on literature since 1950 by considering her relation to those writers she promoted, overtly influenced, or otherwise assisted, such as Margaret Drabble, Jenny Diski, Anna Kavan, Brian Aldiss, Clancy Sigal, Idries Shah, and others. Submission deadline and contact details are here.

Looking forward to your proposals — feel free to contact the Society with any questions.
