        We seek proposals for our panel on "Venice in the Literary Imagination"
for the upcoming American Association for Italian Studies conference,
taking place in Colorado Springs from 3-6 May 2007.

        "Venice has loomed large in the imagination of writers from the
medieval period to postmodernity. Papers which examine the city's
literary significance might explore such areas as aesthetics, gender,
identity, leisure, politics, or travel, or representations of the
libertine, libro d'oro, Carnevale, political prisoners, the Rialto, or
the terra firma. We welcome research on authors of all periods and

        Proposals for twenty-minute papers due by 1 December 2006; please
include brief bio and audiovisual/technology needs. The vagaries of
email being what they are, send copies of proposals to both panel
