40th Annual Northeast MLA Conference. Boston, MA.
Feb. 26-Mar. 1, 2009.

Fantasy fiction writer and graphic novelist Neil Gaiman blurs the border
of reality through imaginative tales that transport us to strange and
alluring lands. Yet embedded in the extraordinary are hints of the
familiar. In what ways does Gaiman modernize old myths and narratives
and to what end? How does internet culture influence his work? What
other cultural texts, traditions, and conventions â€" both new and old â€"
inform Gaiman’s short stories, novels, comics, graphic novels, and
films? What does this generic heterogeneity signify and how can â€" and
should â€" we classify these texts?

"Official Writing as Text"

40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency - Boston, Massachusetts

Given that the bulk of all writing that takes place in the world is in the form of a
bureaucratic memo or report, the comparative lack of in-depth studies on such writing is
striking. This panel will seek to explore the bureaucratic document as a text. Papers
might address a particular document; the genre of bureaucratic writing in relation to
other writing; or the problem of studying bureaucratic writing within literature
departments. Email 250-word abstracts to Hannah Gurman: hrg2005_at_columbia.edu

Deadline: September 15, 2008

Kamille Stone Stanton

Kamille Stone Stanton is inviting contributions for a new collection of
essays on the representation of Africans in the long Eighteenth century.
This selection of essays seeks to contextualize fictional and
biographical representations of Africans within the historical framework
of the abolitionist movement of eighteenth-century Britain. This volume
promises to be broad in scope but with an emphasis on exploring the
particularity of the past rather than undertaking an essentialist search
for “the African” in literature. Article submissions of no more than
7000 words in length in Chicago style (endnotes) should be sent to
Kamille Stone Stanton stonek_at_savstate.edu any time before January 1,
2009.
