The Society of MIdwestern Literature (SSML)
Call for Proposals

Deadline: Rolling

The Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature (SSML) invites proposals from faculty and graduate students for its upcoming 50th anniversary symposium to be held May 20-22, 2021, at the Newberry Library in Chicago. We invite proposals for both creative and critical presentations and panels on any topic related to Midwestern literature, but we especially seek proposals that complicate stereotypical notions of the Midwest as a rural, white, “heartland” space. Such proposals might take advantage of our conference location in Chicago, or they might articulate the diversity of the Midwestern experience by examining the rich and ongoing tradition of writing by Black, Native American, Latinx, Asian, LGBTQ, and disabled authors.
 
SSML publishes two peer-reviewed journals and sponsors panels at MLA, ALA, and MMLA and awards prizes for both critical and creative work presented at the symposium as well as a $1000 student writing prize. We also offer scholarships to graduate students to help defray travel costs.
We are a welcoming and supportive organization and we hope that you will consider joining us. For more information, please visit our website [http://www.ssml.org/symposium/] or contact Carla Barger at cbarge2@uic.edu.
