The Poetics of Economic Concepts

44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

March 21-24, 2013

Boston, Massachusetts

Host Institution:Tufts University

Concepts (and metaphors) originating in the language of business and 
economics play a critical role in literary works. The most prominent 
one, money, has been the focus of many studies in so-called "new 
economic criticism." But other ones like work, value, worth, capital, 
expenditure, profit, and surplus, to name but a few, also have a 
critical role to play. Proposals on any of these concepts will be 
considered. Please send to Prof. Peter C. Pfeiffer 
([log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>).

*Deadline:September 30, 2011*

Please include with your abstract:

Name and Affiliation

Email address

Postal address

Telephone number

A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee with registration)

The 2013 NeMLA convention continues the Association's tradition of 
sharing innovative scholarship in an engaging and generative location. 
The 44th annual event will be held in historic Boston, Massachusetts, a 
city known for its national and maritime history, academic facilities 
and collections, vibrant art, theatre, and food scenes, and blend of 
architecture. The Convention, located centrally near Boston Commons and 
the Theatre District at the Hyatt Regency, will include keynote and 
guest speakers, literary readings, film screenings, tours and workshops.

Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA 
session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or 
seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and 
also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable.
