The conference 'Technologies of Memory in the Arts' focuses on art as a
cultural and technological practice to process and construct the past in
the present. Central questions to this conference are: How do art and
artistic practices function as technologies of memory? How are cultural
artefacts implicated in complex processes of remembering and forgetting, of
recollecting and disremembering, of amnesia and anamnesia?

This year, I am accepting paper proposals for several panels on early modern literature to be delivered at the Thirty-Seventh Annual CEA Conference on Reading the Regions / Writing the Regions / Teaching the Regions to be held from 6-8 April 2006.
 
Papers are especially welcome that deal with ways in which early modern writers dismantled, elaborated, heightened, or constructed ideas of regional identity. Topics that are particularly welcome might address:
intersections between gendered self-fashioning and regional identity
imagined regions (utopias, fantasies, romances)
liminal regions
ecocritical perspectives on place and region
geography and identity
domestic "regions"
