Self-described "student of science" Bruno Latour defines an actor as "any thing that leaves a trace." In keeping with this year's theme of footprints, this panel welcomes papers that consider the traces left by any thing on the world (whether of humans or non-humans). What buried narratives might we excavate by reading residue? What stories are told by echoes? All approaches are welcome, though eco-critical and material readings may be particularly appropriate. Relevant topics might include:

Reading Ethics in the 21 Century
Call for Papers
Since Aristotle the understanding of ethics as a branch of philosophy has been defined as a pragmatic rather than a theoretical field: ethics does not simply involve a discussion of virtues, but the practice of "virtual activities." It is concerned, as Sartre later insists, with living "in the world," where one has the individual moral responsibility for the other and for the political structure of society. The personal responsibility to act "ethically" in this case is made possible by the essential freedom of choice of each individual.

Panel: Middlebrow Modernists on Youth and Age
Conference: MSA 11, Montreal, Canada, Nov 5-8 2009
Deadline: May 9, 2009

The modernist era is often described as a period when an emerging youth culture asserted itself with innovations in literary and aesthetic form. Tension between generations was also, however, a ubiquitous and lucrative theme in popular fiction and journalism. This panel seeks papers on any aspect of this generational divide in middlebrow writing of the period.
