Northern Exposure: Canadians Writing the U.S.A.
a panel at:
39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 10-13, 2008
Buffalo, New York
Canadians and Canadian authors have a unique perspective of the U.S., with their relatively free access to U.S. soil, citizens and culture while maintaining their identity as outside of U.S. culture. While JFK may have proclaimed, "Those whom nature hath so joined together, let no man put asunder," the perspectives from this "marriage" are particularly relevant at this juncture. This panel welcomes papers on Canadian fiction that features U.S. locales and/or characters. Send brief abstracts in the body of email to Elizabeth Abele, SUNY Nassau Community College: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
A/V requirements (if any; $10 media handling fee)
