Abstracts for 20-minute presentations are invited on any topic--literature, music, biography, storytelling, and the expatriate experience in Morocco. Part of the re-invention of Bowles from beyond stereotypical avenues of surrealism and Orientalism will be his cross-cultural examination from the post colonial and postmodern, in a reassessment of his rhetorical ambitions and the displacement of modern reason in the changing East-West dynamic expression of man's social being.

Papers are invited for the following subjects:1) teaching the literature of Bowles from the standpoint of history, postcoloniality, or rhetorical theory: 2) The impact of post nationalism on Orientalism assessments of modern man's character and narrative identity: 3) Critique of the expatriate understanding and rewriting of social agency: and 4) Redrawings of occultism and primitivism.

Please submit 200 - word abstracts to Dr.Raj Chandarlapaty by August 15,2015.
