We are now accepting proposals for the 2006 Rocky Mountain MLA convention in
Tucson, October 12-14 2006.

The Special Topic Session: "Early Modern Witchcraft on Trial" is looking for
submissions dealing with the problems of discerning, disputing and
displaying witchcraft and the occult in the fictional and non-fictional literature of
Renaissance Europe. We are looking in particular for cross-disciplinary
approaches that consider literary texts in the context of historical, political,
legal, anthropological and social analyses.
