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.

We are now accepting proposals for the 2006 Rocky Mountain MLA convention in
Tucson, October 12-14 2006.

The Special Topic Session: "Early Modern Witchcraft on Trial" is looking for
submissions dealing with the problems of discerning, disputing and
displaying witchcraft and the occult in the fictional and non-fictional literature of
Renaissance Europe. We are looking in particular for cross-disciplinary
approaches that consider literary texts in the context of historical, political,
legal, anthropological and social analyses.
