The Canadian Association of American Studies (CAAS) will be holding its
2006 conference in Kingston, Ontario, October 19-22. The theme will be
"American exceptionalism." De Toqueville's post-revolutionary definition
of America's special status among nations in fact characterizes American
rhetoric—in history, religion, politics, literature--from its colonial
beginnings to the present. It is implicit in the Puritans' "city on a
hill," O'Sullivan's "manifest destiny" and, most recently, President
Bush's identification of America as "a force for good in the world."
Proposals for papers and panels (max. 250 words) that deal with the
rhetoric of American exceptionalism past and present from any disciplinary

Waxman, Barbara

The food memoir is an increasingly popular subgenre of autobiography, a
form of autobiography that often presents what Paul John Eakin calls the
"relational life story," a narrative connecting one person's story of
self-development to parents, siblings, spouses, or "proximate others."
Examples include Leslie Li's Daughter of Heaven, M.F.K. Fisher's The
Gastronomical Me, and Ruth Reichl's Tender at the Bone. Food memoirs
intertwine narratives of family life, travel, and cross-cultural
experiences with recipes and the author's representation of an evolving
self. Essays of 7 to 8 pages or 250-word abstracts are welcome. Please
send these to waxmanb_at_uncw.edu by April 1, 2006.=20
