The border is a world of multiple conflicts and difficult definitions,
inhabited by individuals who navigate different frames of reference,
cultural issues, gender roles and performances, economic statuses and
conditions in order to construct a viable identity for themselves.

This panel questions the monoreferentiality or concepts such as cultural
identity, linguistic identity, tradition, gender roles and sexuality,
geography, and nationhood, exploring the ‘borders’ within each of these
categories.

Gender and Sexuality in Gothic Literature

CFP: [Gender Studies] War Literature and the Media

The print and television news media have always played an important role
in creating a “text” for understanding war. Sometimes literary memoirs
and war-time poetry support the media’s outlook on national and
international struggles. At other times, such literature provides a
counter-text, using elements such as irony and satire to undermine the
purported “objectivity” of journalistic attempts to explain the
phenomenon. How have the various media contributed to or undermined the
understanding of war, especially in the post-September 11th world? How
have contemporary writers and poets “written” the war, and do these two
forms of war writing interact at all? Possible topics include:

An increasing number of writers and visual artists are appropriating
computer animation to enhance their various texts, as well as staking out
a cyber-“space” for these works on the Internet. As this virtual world
grows and intersects with the “real” world, anxiety about reality and its
alleged relationship to the visible may become more and more prevalent in
the literature of the twenty-first century. How does electronic
literature negotiate and de-stabilize vision-based identity categories,
specifically those of race and gender? How do other literary and
artistic genres interact with electronic literature to weaken these
categories? Possible topics include:

Staging Femininity: Women and the Theater (4/1/2008; SAMLA 11/7/2008â€"
11/9/2008)

Historically the relationship between women and the theater has been a site
of contestation. A woman’s place in the theater, whether as a character,
an actor, an author, or an attendee, often has drawn pointed social and
literary commentary. In keeping with the theme of the 2008 SAMLA
Convention, Drama, the 2008 SAMLA Women’s Studies Panel seeks paper
proposals that address the ways that femininity has been and is written,
performed, staged, and received in theatrical works.
