CFP: Trauma and Narrative (3/15/06; PAMLA, 11/10/06-11/11/06)

This special session invites papers dealing with various intersections
of narrative and trauma, including but not limited to traumas of war,
dislocation, identity, intersubjective relationships). The generality
of the call thus seeks a wide variety of papers from all and across
disciplines that explore such areas as ethnicity and national identity,
postcolonial identity, class studies, national literatures, trauma
theory, among others. *A paper title, a 500-word proposal, and a
50-word abstract should be sent to the session chair by March 15.
