Please join us for the 60th Annual Convention of the Rocky Mountain
Modern Language Association to be held in Tucson, Arizona on October
12-14, 2006. This year's Women's Caucus Seminar theme is "Earth, Wind,
Water and Fire: Representations of Gender and Natural Elements in
Literature and Film."

Proposals for 15-minute papers are sought from scholars working in all
areas of literature, film, and gender studies. In keeping with this
year's theme, we welcome studies related to how gender is represented or
understood in connection with the natural world and how such
representations help create or shape individual, class, racial and
ethnic identities or mythologies.

Please forward 350 word paper proposals, including title, professional
affiliation, addresses (especially e-mail), and phone number by March 1,
2006. Electronic submissions are encouraged. Notification of
acceptance of the paper will be sent no later than March 15, 2006.

Proposals should be sent to:
