The 60th annual RMMLA convention will be held at the
DoubleTree Resort Hotel at Reid Park, Tucson, AZ from October
12 â€" 14, 2006.

The Literature and Science session invites interpretive
papers focusing on science and its intersection with written
methods of transmission. They might include the reuse of
scientific matter in literary forms; the relationship of
individual writers to science and of certain scientists to
literary figures of their day; the combination of scientific
and literary methods of knowledge making. Papers focusing on
the representation or integration of science in specific
literary texts are especially encouraged. However, proposals
dealing with any aspect of the interdisciplinary field of
literature and science are welcome.

Please submit 250 word abstracts of papers electronically,
either in the body of the email or as an attachment in .doc
format, by March 1, 2006 to:

Jennifer Boyd
Session chair, Literature and Science panel
Wayne State University
