CFP: "Latin American Gay protagonists in Literature and Film".
(deadline for proposals March 15; MLA conference 27-30 December:
I would like to put together a Special Session at the December 2006 MLA
convention, in Philadelphia. I am looking for papers that address Latin
American Gay protagonists in literature and/or film and notions of
exile, identity, and community. I am specifically looking for papers
that use Benedict Anderson's model of community as nation, but am open
to other theoretical structures of analysis as well.
If you are interested, please send me a brief 1-2 page abstract by
