Call for Papers
Mark Twain Circle of America (<>)

Celebrating Mark Twain (open topic)

The Mark Twain Circle invites 250-350 word proposals for 20-minute presentations at the 2024 MLA Convention in Philadelphia. Topics may address any theme or work(s) in Mark Twain’s long life and career, but papers responding to the convention theme, “Celebration: Joy and Sorrow,” are particularly welcome, considering how it echoes the clincher of “A True Story, Repeated Word for Word as I Heard It” (1874): “Oh, no, Misto C---, I hain’t had no trouble. An’ no joy!” Panelists should be or become 2024 members of the Circle.

Deadline for submissions: March 15, 2023, to Judith Yaross Lee, Ohio University, [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
