Another Conference: And we need YOU!

The Northeast MLA (Modern Language Association) conference in February in Boston is a great Chestertonian kind of opportunity. Unfortunately, as yet, I've not received any proposals for the Chesterton panel. The submission deadline is September 15. This link leads to the calls for papers for all the panels. Under the British/Anglophone section, you will find my session--G. K. Chesterton: The Man Who is Today:
G. K. Chesterton: The Man Who is Today This panel invites papers exploring any aspect of Chesterton's works, as well as those discussing his influential predecessors and/or his inspirational influence on his literary descendants. Please send abstracts to Jill.
From this link, all conference information can also be found.
Once again, perhaps you may reach some interested writers. They don't have to be students or professors, just those who write passionately and thoroughly about Chesterton. As is the case with MAPACA, I think having papers on a variety of Chestertonian topics can only help to introduce him and to build enthusiasm in these very vast arenas.
This again from Jill. If anyone is interested, please contact Jill immediately (you don't have to have the paper written now, just the ideas of what you WILL write about), and let's keep spreading the word about Chesterton!
