Panel Title: The End of Tolerance?

38th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 1-4, 2007 Baltimore, Maryland

As the new century began, 'tolerance' was supposed to pour healing oil on
American waters and enable some ground for a universal moral commitment. In
Europe, it was believed that the emergence of the European Union and the
"European Dream" would enable a culture of tolerance and a kindly
integration of The Other.
