Please join us for the 2008 Annual Convention of the Rocky Mountain
Modern Language Association to be held in Reno, Nevada on October
9-11. This year's Women's Caucus Seminar theme is "Female Autonomy." We
are seeking papers on ‘texts’ from various cultures/periods that discuss
female autonomy - some represent emancipation as an individuation
process, others as a form of indoctrination. How do women (authors and
characters) understand autonomy? Proposals for 15-minute papers are
sought from scholars working in all areas of literature, film, and gender
studies.

Please forward 250-350 word paper proposals, including title,
professional affiliation, addresses (especially e-mail), and phone number
by March 19, 2008. Electronic submissions are encouraged. Notification of
acceptance of the paper will be sent no later than March 31, 2008.
