This blog can now report that Ted Howell -- a Temple University Phd candidate -- has just learned his essay "''An Imperialist Inherits the Earth: 'Howards End' in the Anthropocene''" will be published in the Modern Language Quarterly in the spring 2017 issue. BRAVO Dr Howell!

If you're into that sort of thing, of course...."
