When reshaping American literary studies, it will be important to divide it according to a schema that helps keep the historical vision of the field coherent. May I suggest:

Early American–as it is currently constituted.
1800-1865
1865-1914
1914-1970
1970–the present

Thank you for reflecting on the proposed new group structure. Please take a moment to add your comment to the draft proposal itself so that your feedback becomes part of the conversation and the official record. Instructions on how to add a comment to the proposal are available here. If you would like additional help, please contact us at commons@mla.org. Thanks again for participating!

The draft proposals are commendable. I must congratulate the MLA for the initiative. The Global South should be given the recognition it deserves to address the concerns of those inhabiting the countries like India with rich literary and cultural traditions.
