Message 2: Indigenous Literature Panel at the 2003 SLAS Conference Manchester, England

Date: Thu, 13 Feb 2003 08:08:10 -0500
From: R. McKenna Brown <mbrownmail1.vcu.edu>
Subject: Indigenous Literature Panel at the 2003 SLAS Conference Manchester, England

The 2003 Annual Conference of the Society for Latin American Studies will
take place at Hulme Hall, University of Manchester, from 11 to 13 April 2003. 

A panel on indigenous literature is currently being organised, and
contributions from all perspectives are welcome to explore topics such as:
particular writers, texts or genres; emerging and re-emerging literatures
in both oral and written media; literatures within their social, political
and cultural contexts, including revitalization movements; issues of access
and control, including literacy and translation; and the encounter of the
indigenous and non-indigenous worlds in indigenous texts.

The conference organisers very much hope that the conference will cover the
spectrum from arts and cultural studies to history and the social sciences;
interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and post-disciplinary symposia are
also welcome. We particularly welcome, too, proposals that might offer
space to current PhD students alongside academics. 

Anyone interested in submitting an abstract should contact the panel
convenor, R. McKenna Brown immediately at: 

mbrownsaturn.vcu.edu

Final abstract deadline: February 24.
