I am seeking paper proposals for my 2010 panel for NeMLA in Montreal is "The Importance of Studying Oscar [Wilde]: Plays, Stories, Letters."

This panel offers an opportunity to analyze the role Oscar Wilde has played and continues to play in literature, theater and other aspects of culture. Focus can be on his influential wit and wisdom and/or techniques used to present Oscar in the classroom. This topic calls for a diversity of approaches. Please send 200-400 word abstracts to Annette Magid at

Deadline for submission of paper proposal is September 10, 2009.
