Poe and the Middle East

The Poe Studies Association seeks abstracts for 15-20 minute papers on
the place of the Middle East in Poe's writings for one of our two panels
at the 2008 American Literature Association conference. Possible topics
include the aesthetics and cultural politics of Poe's concept of the
arabesque, Orientalist aspects of Poe's works, Poe's representations and
adaptations of the religions and literatures of the Middle East, and Poe
in translation and/or Poe's reception in the Middle East. Relevant topics
not listed here are welcome as well.

Please send 250 word abstracts and a brief CV to Marcy Dinius at
mdinius_at_udel.edu by January 10, 2008.
