updated: 
Monday, March 29, 2010 - 12:34pm
Stephen Park, University of Southern California

This panel will explore the interplay of archaeology and modernist art and literature. While archaeology may initially conjure up images of museums and dusty relics, its methodological goals are thoroughly modernist—to strip away the accrued meaning of history and get down to the original object itself. It aims, in other words, to "make it new."

[UPDATE] The Fictional Lives of American Presidents

updated: 
Friday, March 26, 2010 - 3:47pm
Christian Long / University of Canterbury, Jeff Menne / University of Richmond

While cinema, television, and literature have regularly imagined fictional presidents, the act of fictionalizing the lives of American presidents—that is, giving fictional account of nonfictional presidents—is an imaginative endeavor with greater entailments: it configures the actual and the virtual, the real and the fictional, as a function of our contemporary incapacity to think historically about our present. Real U.S. presidents appear in a number of recent films—Dick (1999) and Frost/Nixon (2008) tell Nixon's tale, while both Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (1996) and W. (2008) feature a sitting president.

How does travel, in literal or figurative terms, impact the racial identification of the traveler, or their sense of the racial identification of those among whom they travel? Papers sensitive to the intersections between race and other forms of identification, such as sex, gender, and class, are of considerable interest to this Travel and Literature standing session panel, as are papers that reflect travel among others in asymmetric relations of position or power to the traveler.

The shape of nationalist fervor is drawn against a background of coherent visuals. But what if the mother tongue speaks in pluralities at the very origin of the nation? This panel seeks to examine the roles of accents, dialects, inflections, and multilingualisms within and upon the national project, as well as the effects of gendered experience on nationalist constructs.

Midwest Modern Languages Annual Conference - Permanent Panel - Canadian Literature

Over 30 years ago, the essay, "Haunted by Lack of Ghosts: Some Patterns in the Imagery of Canadian Poetry," by Northrope Frye appeared. The purpose of this panel is to address the ghosts that do in fact terrorize the Canadian imagination, the Canadian psyche and Canadian culture. We are looking to discover and discuss that which lurks in the shadows of the author's imagination and experience to understand what they represent. These ghosts, real or imagined, can come from any and all forms of Canadian Literature: French, Native, Neo-Canadian, traditional and non-traditional. Please submit a 300-word abstract to lee.bessette@gmail.com by May 14th, 2010.
