Last Call for Sessions â€" September 12 Deadline

The Cultural Studies and Literature Division of the Cultural Studies
Association (CSA) calls for division-sponsored sessions for the Seventh
Annual Cultural Studies Association Meeting, 16-18 April 2009, Kansas City,

In particular, we seek sessions that practice a reading of literature that
highlights its historical engagement in the social construction of
knowledge and interpretation of experience.

The division will sponsor (1) two paper sessions, (2) two roundtables or
workshops, (3) one seminar, OR (4) a combination of two of the above choices.

If interested in proposing a paper session, roundtable session or workshop
session, or a seminar, please submit the following:

a) The name, email address, phone number, and department and institutional
affiliation of the organizer.
b) The names, email addresses, and department and institutional
affiliations of each participant.
c) A 500-word abstract for the session, identifying the type of session
(panel, roundtable, workshop, seminar) proposed. (Also include 500-word
abstracts of each of the papers from each participant. Session should have
only three to four papers).
d) Any audio-visual equipment needs.

Please send all required information NO LATER THAN SEPT 12, 2008 to both of
the CSLD co-chairs: Caroline H. Yang (Department of English, Wesleyan
University) at and Helen Kapstein (Department of English, John
Jay College, CUNY) at
