CFP: Intersections of Trauma, Memory & Narrative

RMMLA Convention, Albuquerque, New Mexico, October 14-16, 2010.

"This special topic session invites papers addressing the intersection of trauma, memory and narrative. What is a narrative of trauma? How are trauma narratives informed by memory, history and culture? What is the relationship between trauma and memory (or forgetting) and how does this relationship shape “ethnic” literary traditions? Particular attention will be given to papers that engage with theories of trauma studies and memory studies."
Submission deadline for abstracts: March 1, 2010.
