        A conference on the Senegalese writer Cheikh Hamidou Kane will be held at
Princeton University on October 6 and 7 2006.
        Kane's work provides an exciting opportunity to inquire into the
intersections of identity, difference, and modernity, as they unfold in our
world today. Submissions on all aspects of Kane's work as well as on the
broader questions his writing and cultural engagement stimulate are welcome.
Please send paper titles and abstracts of no more than 250 words to the
email addresses listed below. The deadline for submission of abstracts is
August 15 2006.
        Cheikh Hamidou Kane has generously agreed to be our guest of honour.

CFP: American Medieval: American Popular Culture in Medieval Film (9/15/06; Kalamazoo, 5/10/07-5/13/07)

Call for Paper Abstracts, proposal deadline: September 15

Session:
American Medieval: American Popular Culture in Medieval Film
42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI
May 10-13, 2007

Depictions of the "medieval" in film often have very little to do with
medieval culture. Instead, the medieval period often becomes a
metaphor for issues, anxieties, and themes that are both modern and
culturally/nationally situated. This panel explores American
cinematic constructions of the "medieval" in an effort to discuss
medievalism in terms of American cultural studies.

  film crossovers (as in BRIDE AND PREDJUDICE and
  MACBOOL) and even comic books (the SPIDER-MAN:
  INDIA series). We have had presentations on novels
