The OED has to give some three pages to defining the word ROMANCE that, with all of its rich history, is at the centre of this Mosaic call for papers. We invite innovative interdisciplinary literary and critical submissions for a special issue we are planning on this theme. For this issue, our interests include, but are not limited to, the following: "the Romantics," who have undergone a renascence of late; the French novel, the roman; romantic fiction; Romanticism; the state of the love story in literature and/or film; and the figure of the "romantic."

Performance, Space, and Public Memory in the Americas
American Studies Association Annual Meeting
October 20-23, 2011
This session seeks interdisciplinary papers that explore the role of performance in creating and disseminating public memory in the Americas. Some questions we hope to address include: How is performance utilized by those in power to construct memory? How can performance destabilize historical narrative? How is political and/or performative speech used in memorial practices? How does embodiment create, disseminate, sustain or challenge public memory? How are space and performance colonized for memorial use?
