This call for papers is addressed to young scholars at the beginning of their career – doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and assistant professors – and invites them to disseminate their research on Gabrielle Roy and her work.
As we know, each generation of academics has read the writings of this great novelist differently. We would first like to know how young scholars approach these texts: what angles they favour, what interpretations they have to propose and, more particularly, what questions they raise; and, moreover, what new material these approaches, interpretations and questions add to our understanding and appreciation of Gabrielle Roy’s work.
Papers may deal with any of Gabrielle Roy’s writings and any aspect of her work. The papers chosen will nevertheless reflect the “productivity” of the chosen angle and interpretations.
Proposals for papers (approximately 500 words) should include a short biographical note as well as an abstract (50 words). Please send them to the coordinator before January 15, 2004.
This ACQL member-organized session is proposed for the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, May 30 - June 1, 2004. For more information about ACQL, to join the association, or to renew your membership, please visit our website www.alcq-acql.ca.
