Update is for last sentence of CFP

The Food Memoir: Tales of Family and Culture

An Increasingly popular subgenre of autobiography, a form of
autobiography that Paul John Eakin calls the "relational life story,"
the food memoir (by M.F.K. Fisher, Leslie Li, and Ruth Reichl, for
example) intertwines narratives of family life, travel, and
cross-cultural experiences with recipes and the author's representation
of an evolving self. Essays about published memoirs of 7 to 8 pages or
250-word abstracts are welcome.

Thanks very much.

Confronting Unnatural Disasters: Feminist Engagements Across and Within

Call for Proposals
In the last year, the world has experienced "natural" disasters of
horrific proportions
-- the Asian tsunami, hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean
regions,
mudslides in Central America, and an earthquake in Pakistan. The
enormity of
these disasters and the devastation that has resulted from connected
human failings
is borne out disproportionately along gender, race, and class lines.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Crossing Borders: Women and Communities of Letters, 1500-1700

We welcome submissions for a volume of essays that addresses issues
discussed in the two-part panel sessions called Crossing Borders: Learned
Women and Communities of Letters presented at the Sixteenth-Century Studies
Conference in 2005.

The goals of this volume are to examine ways in which women participated in
communities of letters, to explore how cultural, national, political, and/or
religious "borders" were crossed in such communities, and to consider ways
in which gender influenced the kinds of participation that occurred in such
communities.

effervescence therein. And so this Colloquium comes at a perfect time
for you to enjoy this too!!!
