CFP: Socialist Culture in the Age of Disco (MLA 2014)

Deadline: March 22, 2013

AATSEEL is sponsoring the following session at MLA 2014 and invites submissions:

Socialist Culture in the Age of Disco

Accounts of culture in the Socialist Bloc are punctuated by moments of dramatic climate change: the Khrushchevian Thaw, the Prague Spring. But what was happening in socialist culture during the "stagnant" 1970s? This panel welcomes papers on any aspect of 1970s culture in socialist East Europe and/or the USSR, including but not limited to literature, visual culture, television, radio, and other mass media.

Please submit a 200-word abstract by March 22, 2013 to Rebecca Stanton: rstanton@barnard.edu.

The 2014 MLA and AATSEEL conferences will take place on January 9-12, 2014, in Chicago.
