Call for Papers-Mothering in Literature Panel at the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)Convention, March 21-24, 2012, Boston, Massachusetts

This session seeks paper proposals that explore the various images of modern mothering and motherhood in literature and film. In particular, the papers will examine the multiple approaches to mothering and diverse conceptualizations of mothering, and contribute new critical perspectives on the state of motherhood. Please send a 1-2 page abstract and a short C.V. (including complete contact information) to Dorsía Smith Silva atdjsmithsilva@yahoo.com with NeMLA in the subject line by September 30, 2012. Please include your A/V requirements (if any; there is a handling fee).
