Nomadism: a kind of critical consciousness that resists settling into
socially coded modes of thought and behaviour...it produces the subversion

highlighting issues such as gender and geography as important focus

Wheeler, Belinda

     In keeping with the 2007 conference theme, "Currents", the 2007

"Australasian Currents." Our panel seeks to explore the current
conversation occurring between people from the Australian, New Zealand,
and South Pacific regions.
     Of particular interest is how people from the Australasian region
are using one or more form/s of creative expression (such as poetry,
fiction, narrative, film, music, art, etc) as a vehicle to represent
themselves and/ or others.
     Topics include, but are not limited to how these creative
endeavors have influenced and/ or critiqued religion, race, gender,

Proposed Panel: Teaching American Regionalism/Local Color
 
Over the past two decades, literary critics--Richard Brodhead, Donna
Campbell, June Howard, Amy Kaplan, Judith Fetterley, Marjorie Pryse, and
Stephanie Foote, to name but a few--have opened up new and compelling (and
often competing) ways of understanding regional and local color writing of
the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, but as has been the case
with critical re-evaluations of the generic categories of realism and
naturalism, these reappraisals have left us in a certain flux as to what
makes a text an example of regionalism and/or local color and what such

ABSTRACTS DUE 1/22/07

A recent article in London's Financial Times (FT) warned its
market-minded readers that the "plight of La Paz provides an
illustration of how a city's unchecked growth can threaten
stability."* The article went on to detail how El Alto, a "slum" city
of 1 million located on a plateau above the Bolivian capital, disrupts
business as usual not just with by now familiar complaints of
"pot-holed roads, belching minibuses, street vendors and packs of
stray dogs," but the radical spatial praxis of its inhabitants.
