MELUS is now accepting proposals for the following two panels at MLA
(December 27-30, 2007, Chicago):

1. Multi-ethnic Literature and Ecofeminism: Intersections

Ecofeminism sees a relationship among nature, women, and people of color.
How have multi-ethnic texts contributed to the ecofeminist or eco-political
agenda? What theoretical and practical issues are involved?

2. Trans/nation: Race, Ethnicity, Citizenship and the State of American

How have current studies on globalization/transnationalism impacted
our conceptions of American ethnic literatures? How have globalization
and transnationalism redefined 21st-century multi-ethnic American
literary studies?

250-word abstracts with 1-page vitae by March 15 to Wenxin Li

These panels are sponsored by MELUS and have already been approved for
inclusion in the 2007 MLA program. Please indicate to which panel you are
proposing. MELUS membership is required once your proposal is accepted.
You must also be a member of MLA to present at the convention.
