Call for Papers

Northern Exposure: Canadians Writing the U.S.A.

a panel at:

39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

April 10-13, 2008
Buffalo, New York

Canadians and Canadian authors have a unique perspective of the U.S.,
with their relatively free access to U.S. soil, citizens and culture
while maintaining their identity as outside of U.S. culture. While JFK
may have proclaimed, "Those whom nature hath so joined together, let no
man put asunder," the perspectives from this "marriage" are particularly
relevant at this juncture. This panel welcomes papers on Canadian fiction
that features U.S. locales and/or characters. Send brief abstracts in the
body of email to Elizabeth Abele, SUNY Nassau Community College:
abelee_at_ncc.edu
 
Deadline: September 15, 2007

Please include with your abstract:

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