The MELUS Panel at SAMLA seeks papers on "Mixing Cultures and American
Ethnicities"

In America, ethnic communities do not exist in a vacuum that precludes
interethnic relationships and influence. In fact, the United States'
ethnic variety has led to the creation and development of unique American
cultural ways within established ethnic communities because of this
crossing of cultural boundaries. This panel will focus on American
literature that considers the relationship between ethnicities and the
consequences of this interaction and of the shifting of ethnic boundaries.

A full range of approaches to and perspectives on the topic is encouraged.

We are seeking papers for a proposed panel on The Cult of Domesticity
and Indigenous Women, to be submitted for consideration to the 2006
