Western Literature Association

Looking beyond the common meaning of "profane" this roundtable takes for its focus the theme of The 51st Annual Conference of the Western Literature Association, to be held in Big Sky, Montana. President Elect, Linda Karell, asks us to approach: "profane as that which is underrepresented, undervalued, censored, denied, shared in secret; unofficial and unsanctioned pleasures; profane as the necessary other side to sacred, as that which helps define sacred but undoes it, too; profane as in challenging rote and accepted ways of thinking about/defining/ celebrating the West, even though those ways might once have occupied the status of subversive.

Monica Filimon/Romanian Studies Discussion Group

Romania stands apart from other Eastern European countries with respect to its Jewish ethnic minority. Before the Second World War, 800,000 Romanian Jews lived and thrived especially in the towns and cities of the country at the time; after 1945, more than half of the Jewish population was exterminated, and 350,000 more would eventually emigrate to Israel with the "help" of the communist authorities in the 1960s and 1970s. Today, the Romanian-Jewish community totals barely 10,000 people, the lowest number in Eastern Europe.
