Fifth Annual Graduate Romanic Association Colloquium 
ON THE EDGE 
Margins and Marginalities on the Brink of a New Millenium 
March 27, 1999



We are accepting abstracts for presentations *by graduate students* in
Hispanic, Portuguese, Italian, and French and Francophone Literatures and
Romance Philology. Works in history, historical linguistics and all relevant
area studies are welcome. This year we encourage papers dealing with the
conference theme from a broad range of perspectives. Some of the more obvious
perspectives are time, space, and gender, but these are certainly not the only
possibilities. Possible topics might include but are not limited to:

 - synchronicities and diachronicities 
 - (cutting) edges, borders and crossings 
 - frontiers, limits and transgressions
 - shifts, changes and transformations
 - margins and marginalities 

Papers can be in English, French, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish and should be
able to be read in 20 minutes (approximately eight to ten double-spaced pages).
Accepted papers may be eligible for publication in our Working Paper Series.

Submit an *anonymous* abstract with a separate self-addressed, stamped envelope
and a cover sheet with the following information:
- the title of the paper
- presenters name
- address
- telephone number
- e-mail address and 
- academic affiliation 

The deadline for submission of abstracts is February 8, 1999. Send the
submission to:
