O Memory, who holds the thread that links
My modern mind to those of ancient days.

The ongoing Greek myth panel of the 61st annual Rocky Mountain MLA
meeting in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, October 4-6, 2007, at the Westin
Calgary Hotel, invites submissions on the relationship between memory
and myth within ancient culture and on the impact of Greek myth on
newer art works, especially literature in English. Suggested
approaches include but are not limited to close readings of the role
of memory in representations of specific myths, social contexts and
needs for myth as an aid to memory, and formal reception of myth.
