Panel Title: The End of Tolerance?

South Atlantic Modern Language Association Convention (SAMLA) November
9 - November 11, 2007 Atlanta GA.

As the new century began, 'tolerance' was supposed to pour healing oil On
American waters and enable some ground for a universal moral commitment. In
Europe, it was believed that the emergence of the European Union and the
"European Dream" would enable a culture of tolerance and a kindly
integration of The Other. The languages and beliefs of the Other were to be
embraced, even celebrated.
