In response to popular demand and in recognition of this time-challenging time of year, MLA 2010 hereby launches the launch of a calendar to celebrate academics. The launch itself will involve twelve monthly installments, so the calendar will be right on time for 2011. The criteria for featuring in the calendar will be worked out in February. As ever suggestions welcome.
For January we are pleased to celebrate Emily Apter, fetishistic scholar, translational thinker, and our FB fan. And this year being the 19th anniversary of the publication of Feminizing the Fetish: Psychoanalysis And Narrative Obsession In Turn-of-the-century France, we thought it only apt to remember the queer work in our own dreamy way.
