40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency - Boston, Massachusetts
This session examines how historical trauma is made present in women's writing as a way to signify women's experiences of modernity and postmodernity. How might the historical traumas of the 20th and 21st centuries provide a way of understanding women's experiences across national and cultural borders? This seminar invites articles in process that focus on how women authors represent trauma in all genres of world literature. Please send abstracts to Jamie Carr, firstname.lastname@example.org, via MS word e-mail attachments. Papers will be circulated before the conference.
Deadline: September 15, 2008
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)
Seminar: participants complete and circulate their papers prior to the convention. Instead of reading papers, participants give a brief presentation of their work, with the session focused on structured exchange between the participants.

Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA panel; however panelists can only present one paper. Convention participants may present a paper at a panel or seminar and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable.
