27-29 June 2014, St Catherine University, St Paul, MN, USA.
Conference co-sponsored by Post-45 (http://post45.research.yale.edu/) and the Middlebrow Network.
This conference takes advantage of this exciting moment in middlebrow scholarship by bringing together scholars from different time periods and national traditions to explore the diverse range of literary production in the twentieth century. We seek proposals for papers, panels, roundtables, workshops, and study groups dealing with any aspect of so-called middlebrow culture, from the Progressive Era, through the interwar period, to Cold War literature and the many literary movements that have marked the second half of the twentieth century and beyond. We envision a wide-ranging and transnational conversation on the middlebrow, and we especially encourage papers from scholars investigating middlebrow culture after World War II.

Interested participants should submit a one-page c.v. and 250-word abstract by October 1, 2013 to Jaime Harker (email@example.com) and Cecilia Farr (firstname.lastname@example.org).
