CFP: Folklore in Post-Colonial Literature (3/10/06; MLA '06)

Folklore in post-colonial or ethnic literature

The American Folklore Society sponsors a special session at the annual
meeting of the MLA. For 2006, we seek papers that consider how works of
literature define, maintain, or defend ethnic or group identity through the
incorporation of folklore.
 
In life, folklore is often used to maintain, create, or defend culture. As
we know, sometimes it is even ³invented² to fulfill this purpose.
Post-colonial populations and ethnic minorities in particular may employ
folklore for political ends.

"Splendour in the Grass":
2006 Victorian Studies Association of Ontario Spring Conference Call for Papers
(Extended Deadline: 30 January 2006)

Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass,
Of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind.

- William Wordsworth, "Intimations of Immortality" (1803-06)

Just as Wordsworth's poem opens itself up to numerous interpretations, so too
does the Victorian Studies Association of Ontario wish to open its conference
to the consideration of a range of subjects around Victorian notions of nature,
splendour, spirit, and knowledge.
