Papers are sought for a panel examining the pedagogical
strategies we use to teach the literature of trauma in the
undergraduate classroom. I wish to examine Ethnic American
and Postcolonial literature in particular. Papers should
reference at least one piece of literature commonly taught,
and provide specific examples of teaching methodologies,
practices, and theories. Papers should run 15-18 minutes.

This panel will be held at the USACLALS conference at Santa
Clara University. Information about the conference follows.

Please send 250 word abstracts and a brief CV by April 1,
