UPDATE: The Food Memoir: Tales of Family and Culture (4/1/06; SAMLA, 11/10/06-11/12/06)

Update is for last sentence of CFP

The Food Memoir: Tales of Family and Culture

An Increasingly popular subgenre of autobiography, a form of
autobiography that Paul John Eakin calls the "relational life story,"
the food memoir (by M.F.K. Fisher, Leslie Li, and Ruth Reichl, for
example) intertwines narratives of family life, travel, and
cross-cultural experiences with recipes and the author's representation
of an evolving self. Essays about published memoirs of 7 to 8 pages or
250-word abstracts are welcome.

Thanks very much.

Confronting Unnatural Disasters: Feminist Engagements Across and Within
April 22, 2006 - Occidental College, Los Angeles
Call for Proposals
In the last year, the world has experienced "natural" disasters of
horrific proportions
-- the Asian tsunami, hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean
mudslides in Central America, and an earthquake in Pakistan. The
enormity of
these disasters and the devastation that has resulted from connected
human failings
is borne out disproportionately along gender, race, and class lines.
Such disasters

We look forward to energetic dialogue from interdisciplinary perspectives on these sub-themes:
