CFP: Canadian Literature (4/15/07; M/MLA, 11/8/07-11/11/07)
Midwest Modern Language Association
49th Annual Convention: "Revisiting Realisms"
November 8-11, 2007, Cleveland, Ohio
Canadian Literature Section: The Canadian Nation(s)
Thomas King has called the border delimiting the boundaries of the Canadian nation "an imaginary line...a political line, that border line. It wasn't there before the Europeans came. It was a line that was inscribed across the country after that." This panel will explore how literatures written in and about Canada seek to define, question, or contest the idea of the Canadian nation(s), or engage with the notion of a Canadian literary canon. Papers on Quebecois, First Nations, and diasporic nationalisms in Canada are particularly encouraged.
Please send 200-word proposals by April 15, 2007 to Adele Holoch, Univ. of Iowa, adele.holoch_at_yahoo.com.
