LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory publishes critical essays which interpret texts from an engaging, coherent theoretical perspective and which provide original, close readings of texts. Because LIT addresses a general literate audience, we encourage essays unburdened by excessive theoretical jargon. We do not restrict the journal's scope to specific periods, genres, or critical paradigms. Submissions must use MLA citation style. Please send essays in triplicate (if outside the US or Canada, one copy will do), along with a 100 word abstract, to Regina Barreca, Editor, LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory, University of Connecticut, Department of English, 215 Glenbrook Rd., Unit 4025, Storrs, CT 06269-4025, USA.

This proposed seminar for the American Comparative Literature Association meeting to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana (US) on April 1-4, 2010, seeks to further interdisciplinary and cross-cultural discussion of film in colonial and postcolonial cultures. The session organizer is especially interested in essays that explore film from a cultural studies perspective, examining how cinema interacts with (as well as reflects) culture. Especially welcome are cross-cultural comparisons and studies that read more than one film in order to understand a larger trend or movement and analyze how this particular medium—which developed alongside colonization and decolonization—participated in those processes.
This panel seeks papers that investigate the ways contemporary multi-ethnic writers negotiate multiple sites of memory, relating any literary genre to current theories of memory, nostalgia, commemoration, memorialization, cultural memory or trauma studies. Papers that deal with contemporary American multiethnic literatures of any genre are welcome. Papers that problematize or extend theories by considering the relationship of particular works of literature or ethnic literatures to memory are particularly welcome.
