Decoding Literature in Conflict
Graduate Conference
Saint Louis University, Madrid, Spain
June 9, 2006

Sometimes violent, sometimes passive, literature not only relates conflict,
but also creates it. At Saint Louis University Madrid's 4th-annual graduate
conference, we invite our peers to consider "Decoding Conflict in
Literature." From the nuclear family to nuclear warfare, the Spanish Civil
War to colonial unrest, writers dealing with conflict in literature require
and demand their readers' attention and response.

Topics of the conference to include:
