Toni Morrison Society

The Toni Morrison Society is seeking individual paper proposals for two sponsored panels at the 2011 American Literature Association in Boston, May 26-29, 2011

Panel 1 Toni Morrison and the Gaze of Memory

This panel seeks papers that interrogate Morrison's complex use of "memory" such as the "rememory" of Beloved or the refusal to remember in much of Love. Papers that focus on related issues such as history, story, chronicle and recollection would be most welcome. Ideally we hope to investigate how Morrison engages both past and present in her complex narratives.

Panel 2 Masculinity in Morrison's Fiction

Columbia University French Graduate Student Association

The French Graduate Student Association of Columbia University is pleased to announce its 20th Graduate Student conference, to be held March 4th, 2011.

The conference will take as its theme text and image in French and world literatures and art. We will explore how text and image complement and interact and compete with one another in composite works, and how an understanding of each can inform readings of hybrid works, such as textual/lettrist art, visual poetry, film, and even theatre. Graduate students of all departments are welcome to submit abstracts of 300-500 words, and we especially welcome projects with a comparative focus and/or approach. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
