45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

How is the reality of post-9/11 America being captured in contemporary immigrant stories? Are contemporary authors telling stories of American immigration, exile, or both simultaneously? This panel seeks to elucidate the ways in which 9/11 and its lingering aftermath is figured in recent immigrant fiction while examining themes and trends emerging in this growing body of literature. Please send inquiries or 250-500 word abstracts (preferably MSWord or PDF attachments) to Katie Daily-Bruckner, dailym@bc.edu.

Deadline: September 30, 2013

Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation

Telephone number
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee with registration)

Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however, panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable. http://www.nemla.org/convention/2014/cfp.html
