This is a special topics cfp sponsored by NYCEA at CEA. You do not have to be a member of NYCEA to present, but you do have to become a member of CEA as do all presenters once their proposals are accepted. Your paper proposal for this panel can explore any dimension of the treatment of the theme of violence in literature. We welcome any presentation that applies any form of theory to exploring this topic in literature. Any submissions that studies the cultural and/or historical (violent episodes or periods) behind the treatment of this topic in literature are also welcome, as are any extrinsic studies of the topic (i.e. the psychological theory of violence; new neurological science as it may unlock and explain the treatment of violence in a piece of literature or literature in general; the relationship between a piece of art or music's treatment of violence and its literary antecedent, source, or progeny.)
Submission: August 15 - November 1, 2010

Conference Theme: Fortunes
Money, luck, friendship, health, a warm place to sleep. In a world staggered by economic decline and natural catastrophes, what are the new boundaries of success and misfortune? How do art, literature, and the classroom respond to the Rota Fortunae? For our 2011 meeting, CEA invites papers and panels that explore Fortune as both a daunting challenge and an elusive ideal. For more information, please see the full CFP at http://cea-web.org/
