Submissions are invited for a session on Censorship and Academic Freedom
at the 2006 NEMLA conference in Philadelphia, PA., March 02 - March 05,
2006.

>From the Ward Churchill controversy to the Patriot Act and the Academic
Bill of Rights, college campuses and classrooms have increasingly become
the focus of the censorship debate. This panel will examine the various
ways in which that debate is being played out and explore faculty
responses to the issues, both within and beyond their classes. Are
there certain subjects that should be avoided or ignored or should
colleges entertain even the most offensive possibilities in the name of
free speech?

The department of English at Karlstad University, Sweden, invites session
organizers and presentations for an international, multidisciplinary
conference with a focus on different relationships between space, haunting
and discourse. We are very happy that a number of people from different
countries and disciplines responded to our first call, which means that the
conference will be a truly international and interdisciplinary forum for
presentations and discussions related to the conference themes.
