Update is for last sentence of CFP

The Food Memoir: Tales of Family and Culture

An Increasingly popular subgenre of autobiography, a form of
autobiography that Paul John Eakin calls the "relational life story,"
the food memoir (by M.F.K. Fisher, Leslie Li, and Ruth Reichl, for
example) intertwines narratives of family life, travel, and
cross-cultural experiences with recipes and the author's representation
of an evolving self. Essays about published memoirs of 7 to 8 pages or
250-word abstracts are welcome.

Thanks very much.

Here are the panels for the 2006 MLA Convention, Division on Autobiography,
Biography, and Life Writing. If your paper is accepted, you will have to
become a member of the MLA by April 1--if you are a member already, then
you're all set. Please send your proposal to the person chairing the
session; you can submit to more than one session, although if you're
selected for both, I assume you'd be asked to choose one.
