I have changed the topic and the deadline date of my proposed session.

In its own time the Haitian Revolution (1791-1803) was a cataclysmic
event that rivaled the French Revolution in its impact upon the Americas
and Europe. But has it received the same literary treatment as that
contemporary European event? What did the Haitian Revolution mean in
the early nineteenth-century, and what does it mean now? Has its
significance been repressed by black Atlantic and/or Western writers?
Proposals from scholars are invited for 20-minute papers on this topic.
Please send 250-word abstracts with the requisite information according
to the SAMLA call for papers guidelines by May 15, 2007, to Christine
Gallant, Professor, Department of English, Georgia State University,
Atlanta, Georgia, 30303, at cgallant_at_gsu.edu. (11/ 9-11/07; SAMLA
