This panel invites papers on the theme of cannibalism – whether a trope within travel literatures of wonders, an ethnographic report, an account of survival, a fiction of horror, an anthropology of the aberrant, a metaphor, or anything between and beyond these categories. Please send 300-500 word abstracts and brief biographical statements to Elena Daniele: email@example.com

Please send 250 word abstracts to Ana Oancea (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Sept. 30, 2012.
