10th Annual Conference of the Space Between Society
Northwestern U, Evanston, IL
Keynote Speaker: Jonathan Freedman, U. of Michigan

This conference addresses the history, representation or self-
representation, and interpretations of those exiled, refugee, and
migrant 'Others' created by the world wars and the reformation of
national, ethnic, racial, classed, and gendered identities and cultures.

We welcome paper proposals that address national and exile literatures,
and other art forms such as film, photography, architecture, painting and
sculpture, dissident political and sexual expression, cultural and ethnic
mythologies, environmental and geographical interventions, and revivals
and interpretations of ancient languages, national dress, dance, folklore,
music, and oral traditions.

Please send 300-word abstracts and brief CV to Phyllis Lassner: by December 1st, 2007.
