THE ETHICS OF HOLOCAUST RESCUE AND RESCUERS. We are interested in
presentations that respond to either (or both) of these themes specfically
in terms of Patrick Henry's book WE KNOW ONLY MEN: THE RESCUE OF JEWS IN
FRANCE DURING THE HOLOCAUST (Catholic University of America Press, 2007).
What is or is likely to be the importance or impact of this scholarly a nd
critical work upon Holocaust Studies, upon comparative genocide studies,
or upon other fields? We will consider 250 to 500-word proposals until 15
Mar.; contact Sandor Goodhart (goodhart_at_purdue.edu) and Richard Middleton-
Kaplan (rkaplan_at_harpercollege.edu).

Submissions are for a proposed Special Session Panel at the 2008 MLA
Annual Convention in San Francisco, December 27-30, 2008. This session has
not yet been approved. After selecting panelists based on the abstracts
submitted, we will submit a formal panel proposal by the April 1 deadline.
Panelists selected should note the April 7 deadline for MLA membership.
