The Caribbean Chapter of the College English Association (CEA-CC) plans to
publish the proceedings of its Spring 2005 conference on "Transgression and
Taboo." We are seeking an additional 5 papers to supplement this volume. We
are interested in essays that explore instances of the dialectics of
transgression and taboo in theoretical, poetical, fictional and dramatic texts.

We are particularly interested in papers that explore the intersection
between transgression, taboo, and incest.

Call for Papers: 'Reconstructing Hybridity'; An Anthology of Critical Essays

We will greatly welcome your original high-quality contribution to the
volume Reconstructing Hybridity which will provide an interesting
international forum for the discussion of hybridity. In recent years,
hybridity has become one of the most important and influential as well as
contested concepts in post-colonial theory. While theorists like Homi
Bhabha have used it to describe the effective and productive conditions of
culture, others like Aijaz Ahmad criticize the application of the term as a
form of postmodern alienation, devoid of historical particularity.

College English Association National Conference: Reading the Regions /
Writing the Regions / Teaching the Regions

Deadline for all proposals: October 15, 2005

I am coordinating a set of panels on the topic of "Regional Mothers and
Motherhood" at the national College English Association conference, for
which I am interested in receiving individual or panel presentation
proposals that address ways in which art, film, literature, and other
media have used the figure of the mother to define, represent,
reinscribe, cross, blur, deconstruct, or transgress geographical,
historical, cultural, and/or ideological regions.
