CFP: CAPTIVITY NARRATIVES IN LITERATURE AND FILM

NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE: DECEMBER 15, 2006

The 28th Annual Meeting of the SW/TX PCA/ACA
February 14â€"17, 2007
Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Rowlandson may have set a classroom standard for captivity narratives in
American literature but there are other stories to be considered.

In addition to those captured by Native Americans, slave narratives also
tell stories of life in captivity. And, captivity narratives are not limited to
an American tradition; many folk and fairy tales preceded them in other
cultures.
