"GUILT"
CALL FOR PAPERS for a special issue of English Studies in Canada on the
topic of GUILT, to appear in 2006. Melanie Klein argued that guilt is
constituted at the meeting point between powerful, often conflicting
impulses: love and reparation on one hand, hate, greed, and aggression on
the other. Guilt, that is, is the product of and in turn produces both
conciliation and violence, well-being and shame. What does it mean to be
guilty or to feel guilt, as individuals and as collectives (societies,
gangs, communities, corporations, nations, etc.)? How is guilt experienced
psychologically? historically? politically? culturally? sexually?

Autobiography and the Body

We are seeking papers that will focus on the role of the body in autobiography for a panel that will be held at the Northeast MLA Conference March 2-5, 2006 in Philadelphia, PA. This panel will focus on the recent trend among feminist scholars to examine the prevalence of the body in the autobiographies of women and its noticeable absence in autobiographies of men. Often in women’s autobiography, the physical self contributes largely to the author’s own identity. For example, Lucy Grealy’s Autobiography of a Face equates her physical appearance with her definition of self, while more tradition autobiographies of men, such as Benjamin Franklin and Henry Adams, emphasize a life of intellectual accomplishments.

Phantom Processions and Runaway Trains: How Narrative Structures are Linked
to Models of the Psyche
 
 
The metaphor of a ³train of thought² is an old and accepted one. with sanity
as the ability to maintain the train of rational causation, and madness, the
breakdown of that train.
David Hume compares the mind to a theatre, and suggests that thoughts are a
series of phantom performers who pass in procession on the stage of the
mind. Like Hume, Freud sees the psyche as a space; in the ²topographical

The contemporary world system of global capitalist expansion that is producing new imperialisms around the globe will remain imperialist throughout the visible future, unless we learn how to "cross borders" from a dominating and imperialising past and present to a more "democratic" and just future society.

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?
