Masculinities in Recent Francophone Literature: 1950-present

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

Literary representations of men in narratives of war, the quest for
independence, and racial identity are as multifaceted as a nation’s
interpretation of male roles in post-modern society. These narratives,
which often center around institutions dominated by men, illustrate the
importance of homosocial relationships in promoting men’s interests. This
panel invites papers on any aspect of masculinities--such as labor, family,
the military, migration, ethnicity, or sexuality--in recent Francophone
literature. Please send one-page proposals with e-mail address to Edith
Vandervoort (

Deadline: September 15, 2008

Please include with your abstract:

Name and Affiliation
Email address
Postal address
Telephone number
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)

session or participate in a roundtable.
