    Call for Papers
    41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
    April 7-11, 2010
    Host Institution: McGill University
    Site: Hilton Bonaventure Montreal, Quebec

    “Postcolonial Francophone Writers Narrating Places of Creation,
    Transformation and Connection”
    This panel will explore the relationships between space and place, as
    postcolonial Francophone writers rethink place as a potential for personal
    and social creation, for transformation and connection. Some themes to
    consider: how is the virtual site of the page a place where narrator and
    reader connect? How do old memories and new geographical place interact and
    connect? How do urban environment, nature, gender, sexuality or class
    affect the reconfiguring of place? Please send 250-300 word abstracts to
    Anna Rocca at arocca@salemstate.edu by
    September 30, 2009.

    Please include with your abstract:
    Name and Affiliation

    A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)
