The Byron Society of America solicits paper proposals featuring new research and fresh methodologies applied to any aspect of Byron’s life or works for the 129th MLA Annual Convention (Chicago, 9-12 January 2014). Paper proposals should demonstrate a desire to expand the field of Byron studies by placing the poet and his works in conversation with understudied aspects of Romanticism and/or innovative approaches. Topics may include but are not limited to: material culture studies, object -oriented criticism, cosmopolitanism, nationalism, theories of empire, “spatial turn,” digital humanities, and/or the history of the book.

Preference will be given to junior faculty and graduate students.

A 250 word abstract and brief autobiography (one paragraph) are due by 25 March. Please send materials and inquiries to: Halina Adams (
