New Deadline for "Cross Cultural Explorations of Trauma" at the North
East MLA, Baltimore March 1-4.

Despite Cathy Caruth's claim in her landmark collection "Trauma:
Explorations in Memory" that "trauma itself may provide the very link
between cultures," trauma has been infrequently explored from
cross-cultural and non-Western perspectives. This panel seeks to examine
the relationship between trauma and culture, to explore and possibly
critique the Eurocentric perspective of trauma studies, and to
investigate the manner in which trauma reinvigorates psychoanalysis with
the work of cultural critique.

Paper topics might consider the following questions:

Class, Culture and Public Intellectuals: A themed issue of Reconstruction

The year 2007 marks the 10th anniversary of Michael Denning's The
Cultural Front and the 20th anniversary of Alan Wald's The New York
Intellectuals. Both of these publishing milestones raise important
questions about the historical relationship between U.S. intellectuals
and mass culture, radical left politics and academic scholarship, and
the relationship between cultural production and social conflict,
topics which remain of pressing concern today.
