41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010
Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure
This panel will address the spiritual “malaise” or relative emptiness linked to the erosion of the sacred, that once functioned as a traditional core of existential meaning. We wish to discuss the traces of this fragmented core by investigating in which ways the sacred has been reorganized in modern literary and theoretical discourse and by examining what new theoretical models might allow us to interpret its manifestations in modern literature and present day culture. Please send 250-500 words abstracts to Sara Danièle Bélanger M. (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Sept. 30, 2009.
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)
The 41st Annual Convention will feature approximately 350 sessions, as well as dynamic speakers and cultural events. Details and the complete Call for Papers for the 2010 Convention will be posted in June: www.nemla.org.
