This roundtable seeks proposals with regard to East European literary texts, written after 1989, or contemporary theoretical works that implement or perform a certain vision for the future of the country from which the text hails or of the region as a whole. Because the way change is conceptualized, on both the macro and the micro levels, has a direct bearing on the way a future is conceived, particularly encouraged are submissions that explore this relation. Please email 250-word abstracts to Mihaela Harper at mharper@my.uri.edu.

Abstract deadline: September 30, 2010

Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
Email address
Postal address
Telephone number
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee with registration)

Note: Participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session but can only present ONE paper (though they can partake in a roundtable or a creative session in addition).
