Dear list,

I would like to place three calls for papers:

a) call for papers MLA 2006, one of the two official sessions for the
Society for the Study of Narrative Literature (SSNL). Through a computer
error on the part of the MLA, a number of emails sent in December got
lost and the session therefore was not posted in the MLA Newsletter.

Here is the text of the session. I am moving the deadline forward to 15
March:
