Lost Pasts/Broken Futures: Forgetting as Narrative Crisis in Film
Numerous films--from Memento and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind to Manchurian Candidate and Spellbound--are preoccupied with acts of forgetting. More than just a plot element, forgetting serves as a narrative device that keeps afloat multiple narrative possibilities, forcing the viewer to engage manifold variables by denying the possibility of a singular narrative. This panel invites papers that investigate how the act of forgetting--rather than the attempt to remember--is used as a narrative device in film. Send abstracts to Thomas Knauer at thomas.knauer@sunyit.edu.

Insular Identities and the Borders of Medieval Britain

While England, Scotland, and Wales each produced their own bodies of literature in the Middle Ages, their physical proximity at times engendered a sense of shared literary culture, even as the fraught political relations among them complicated any notion of a shared identity. This panel seeks to explore Britain's insular identities through an examination of its borders, and invites papers dealing with depictions of borders, bordered identities, border theory, or cross-border relations in medieval Britain. Send 300-500-word abstracts to Katherine Terrell: kterrell@hamilton.edu.

This panel will examine the practice of importing characters and plot lines from one literary work to another. This panel hopes to reveal how the relationship between the newer work and its source material affects the way the way that readers and audiences receive both works, particularly when this relationship crosses cultural, chronological, and genre divides. Please send abstracts to Michael Rio and William Duffy at wsduffy@buffalo.edu.

Theorizing the Law of God and the Law of Man Theorizing the Law of God and the Law of Man in Late Medieval Literature

Andreea Boboc, Kathleen E. Kennedy

We are inviting interdisciplinary contributions on law and literature for a collection of essays and CMS session that theorize the law of God and the law of man in late medieval literature (English and continental). We hope to receive submissions that explore various aspects of law: common, canon, civil, or customary law. We welcome theoretical angles that are in themselves interdisciplinary, such as cultural anthropology, social/cultural history, or critical theory. We see this volume as a contribution toward what Anthony Musson calls "the new legal history" – an exciting emerging field that values the intersection of law, literary texts, and culture.
