PANEL PROPOSAL: SCMS conference, Vancouver BC March 2006
Tony Jackson, Associate Prof of English, Grad Coordinator
University of North Carolina, Charlotte

Out of time: fiction film and the non-chronological plot

This panel will explore the nature and implications of fiction films
that feature non-chronological plots. In recent years we have had
interesting new additions to this mode of filmic storytelling: in the
US, Pulp Fiction, 21 Grams, and Memento for example. What can we learn
about filmic storytelling, temporality in film, and therefore
storytelling and temporality in general by studying such films? All
theoretical orientations welcome.

Earl Yarington

Cambridge Scholars Press has contacted me and would like me to submit a book proposal on my proposed Society for the Study of American Women Writers panel titled "Popular Nineteenth-Century Women Writers and the Literary Marketplace." Though I can only accept four papers for the conference, I need about twelve to fifteen papers for the book. I would like to get the book proposal out before the end of this year; therefore, please note the deadline listed below. The focus of the book will be on the American marketplace and how women writers dealt with their editors ("gentlemen publishers"). In other words, how did the woman writer's relationship with the publisher influence or change her work?
