Over 30 years ago, the essay, "Haunted by Lack of Ghosts: Some Patterns in the Imagery of Canadian Poetry," by Northrope Frye appeared. The purpose of this panel is to address the ghosts that do in fact terrorize the Canadian imagination, the Canadian psyche and Canadian culture. We are looking to discover and discuss that which lurks in the shadows of the author's imagination and experience to understand what they represent. These ghosts, real or imagined, can come from any and all forms of Canadian Literature: French, Native, Neo-Canadian, traditional and non-traditional. Please submit a 300-word abstract to lee.bessette@gmail.com by May 14th, 2010.
