Westminster English Colloquia Series
– Call for Papers –
Unpacking the Library: Literatures and their Archives.

The history of Western culture is punctuated by affirmations of the presence,
rebirth, or return of literature. Such affirmation involves, necessarily, if
implicitly or symbolically, a turn toward the archival forms of the text – that
is, traditionally speaking, a turn toward the codex and the library. This
recourse to textual holdings of various kinds clearly involves often
unacknowledged complexities of institutional, technical and cultural issues.

Here are the panels for the 2006 MLA Convention, Division on Autobiography,
Biography, and Life Writing. If your paper is accepted, you will have to
become a member of the MLA by April 1--if you are a member already, then
you're all set. Please send your proposal to the person chairing the
session; you can submit to more than one session, although if you're
selected for both, I assume you'd be asked to choose one.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Crossing Borders: Women and Communities of Letters, 1500-1700

We welcome submissions for a volume of essays that addresses issues
discussed in the two-part panel sessions called Crossing Borders: Learned
Women and Communities of Letters presented at the Sixteenth-Century Studies
Conference in 2005.

The goals of this volume are to examine ways in which women participated in
communities of letters, to explore how cultural, national, political, and/or
religious "borders" were crossed in such communities, and to consider ways
in which gender influenced the kinds of participation that occurred in such
communities.
