New Presidential Forum Essays Published in Profession

As part of a yearlong series, presentations from the 2014 convention session “Trauma, Memory, Vulnerability” have now been published in Profession, the MLA’s journal devoted to the fields of modern languages and literatures as a profession. Featuring an introduction by Susan Rubin Suleiman and essays by Andreas A. Huyssen, Ananya Jahanara Kabir, María José Contreras Lorenzini, and Michael Rothberg, the cluster looks at how vulnerability can shed light on trauma and memory studies in a global context. Presentations from two other Presidential Forum sessions will be published in the journal in the fall. Essays in Profession may be read for free by all; to comment, log in to MLA Commons with your member credentials.
