CFP: Special Issue on Guilt (11/30/05; journal issue)

"GUILT"
CALL FOR PAPERS for a special issue of English Studies in Canada on the
topic of GUILT, to appear in 2006. Melanie Klein argued that guilt is
constituted at the meeting point between powerful, often conflicting
impulses: love and reparation on one hand, hate, greed, and aggression on
the other. Guilt, that is, is the product of and in turn produces both
conciliation and violence, well-being and shame. What does it mean to be
guilty or to feel guilt, as individuals and as collectives (societies,
gangs, communities, corporations, nations, etc.)? How is guilt experienced
psychologically? historically? politically? culturally? sexually?

Autobiography and the Body

We are seeking papers that will focus on the role of the body in autobiography for a panel that will be held at the Northeast MLA Conference March 2-5, 2006 in Philadelphia, PA. This panel will focus on the recent trend among feminist scholars to examine the prevalence of the body in the autobiographies of women and its noticeable absence in autobiographies of men. Often in women’s autobiography, the physical self contributes largely to the author’s own identity. For example, Lucy Grealy’s Autobiography of a Face equates her physical appearance with her definition of self, while more tradition autobiographies of men, such as Benjamin Franklin and Henry Adams, emphasize a life of intellectual accomplishments.

The second "Scottish Renaissance" which is often said to have begun with
the publication of Lanark and which reached a high point with the
publication of Trainspotting appears to have reached a new stage
following devolution and the establishment of Scotland's first parliament
in nearly three hundred years. Scotland's recently changed political
situation suggests a number of questions regarding the present and future
of contemporary Scottish fiction. Has devolution changed the implied role
of the Scottish fiction writer and the reception of and/or market for
