Papers are sought for a panel examining the pedagogical
strategies we use to teach the literature of trauma in the
undergraduate classroom. I wish to examine Ethnic American
and Postcolonial literature in particular. Papers should
reference at least one piece of literature commonly taught,
and provide specific examples of teaching methodologies,
practices, and theories. Papers should run 15-18 minutes.

This panel will be held at the USACLALS conference at Santa
Clara University. Information about the conference follows.

CFP: Fissures and Sutures: Sources of Division and Mutual Aid in Postcolonial
Reflections on History and Literature, United States Association for
Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies

selling trauma: post-apartheid(?) and tourism

Apartheid ended more than ten years ago; regardless, bulletholes in the
stained glass of Regina Mundi remain, long after the June 1976 Soweto school
uprisings, as do the lime mines on Robben Island, the squatter camps in Soweto
and Cape Town, and the to-be-furnished space for representing the Truth and
Reconciliation Commission in the Apartheid Museum on the skirts of
Johannesburg.
