CALL FOR PAPERS

--------------------------
Please distribute widely
--------------------------

Deadline for 250-word abstracts: February 14, 2009.

Participants in 'Sense and Sustainability' should address the themes of
nature within the general theme of how the present environmental crisis
informs and deforms literary theory and English language practice, written
or performed.

Send submissions to submissions(at)egss-umontreal.org. Submissions should
be 250 words ('.doc' files only, no '.docx' please) and should arrive by
Sunday, February 14, 2009. While focussing on literary theory and English
language practice, we want to stress the openness of 'Sense and
Sustainability'.

We also invite creative submissions for readings on the theme of nature.
Participants will have 5-10 minutes to read, present, or perform their
work, which may include poetry, prose, film shorts, songs, or art
installations. Please send a description of your idea to
submissions(at)egss-umontreal.org by Sunday, February 14, 2009.
