For New York College English Association, April 11-12, 2008 at Borough of
Manhattan Community College, NYC. Call for papers and/or roundtable
discussants on the theme of reconciliation or anti-reconciliation and
national, regional, ethnic or cultural identity in literature, movies and
in our classrooms. What are the neglected critical approaches,
pedagogies, books, poems, or movies, etc. in this arena? What is the
relationship between globalization and immigrant and diasporic
reconciliation? How must college educators prepare themselves to engage
these themes with their students?

Especially welcome is expertise in the following:
• Anglophone post-colonial, Caribbean, or black diaspora studies,
literature and criticism
• Scottish-Caribbean identities
• 20th and 21st century Scottish literature and reconciliation or
the refusal to reconcile with regard not only to “British” identity but
the seeming return to a bolder Scottish national profile
• Anglophone Latino/a literature and others.

Abstracts via email by March 7.
