Midwest Modern Languages Annual Conference - Permanent Panel - Canadian Literature

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.

We will consider aural and visual communication, along with varied metaphorical, cultural, and technological "literacies."

(Re)Constructing the American West -- SAMLA 2010 (11/5-11/7)

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 - 8:47pm
SAMLA 2010 (11/5-11/7)

In his essay "Walking," Henry David Thoreau says, "We go eastward to realize history and study the works of art and literature, retracing the steps of the race; we go westward as into the future, with a spirit of enterprise and adventure." Similarly, in All the King's Men, Robert Penn Warren's protagonist remarks on a trip westward, "For West is where we all plan to go some day." Yet, Warren's west is starkly different from Thoreau's. The myth of the American West has provided a geographical space for philosophers, writers, artists, and filmmakers to interrogate, personal as well as cultural, ambivalence towards the promises of Manifest Destiny, the American Dream, capitalism, individualism, diversity, and community.
