Call for Essay Proposals for Volume on Anglophone South Asian Women’s Writing

We invite proposals for a volume in the MLA Options for Teaching series entitled Teaching Anglophone South Asian Women’s Writing, edited by Deepika Bahri and Filippo Menozzi.

This volume seeks meaningful responses to the following questions: What do we teach when we teach South Asian women’s writing? How do we teach it in a variety of contexts? How is our pedagogy changing in response to new developments: digital contexts, emergent genres, changes in the publishing industry, and growing anxiety about the underrepresentation of nonanglophone writing? Click Detailed Description for more information about the proposed volume.

Send 300-word proposals for essays of 3,000–3,500 words to Proposals should include the name(s) of the writer(s) proposed for discussion and the argumentative thrust of the proposed article. Proposals will be revised and reviewed on the project Web site as the volume is shaped interactively. The final deadline for proposals is 1 August 2015, but we will close the call for proposals earlier if we receive an overwhelming number of responses. Please send any initial queries to
