Gender and Chaucer: New Readings
In Crip Theory, Robert McRuer argues that 'compulsory able-bodiedness' functions analogously to compulsory heterosexuality to determine expressions of identity and marginalize the non-compliant. This panel seeks papers that investigate the work the Canterbury Tales does in constituting and challenging fourteenth-century norms about gender and sexuality as inflected by other categories of identity including, but not limited to, age, religious status, and ability. Send abstracts of 250-300 words to Heide Estes, at email@example.com

Annual National Conference

It might be said that regional literature has a photographic memory. Dialect, landscape, micro-culture and spatiality are drawn with exacting precision. The connection between art and authors, or art and regional literature, may be causal or merely influential. This panel will explore how the term ekphrasis has grown in inclusivity, how regional literature intersects with the sister arts, and what these connections imply. Submit 250 word abstracts to Brandi So, Stony Brook University, Brandi.So@stonybrook.edu.

Word and Image
Northeast Modern Language Association
Boston, MA March 21-24, 2013
This panel considers the interplay between word and image in works of literature, or in works that defy categorization as either fiction or nonfiction. How does photography function as an "effet de réel" in works by André Breton or W. G. Sebald, for example? How do ekphrastic texts function in relation to an absent visual "other"? Please send 300-word abstracts to Gillian Pierce (firstname.lastname@example.org)
