CFP: Non-Combatant Wartime Trauma

Conference: 43rd Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association
Place: Rochester, New York
Date: March 15-18, 2012
Submission deadline for abstracts: September 30, 2011

Description: »American literature has historically ascribed the traumas of war almost entirely to the domain of the male combatant’s experience; in the process, valuable contributions on the subject by female authors have been largely overlooked. This panel seeks paper proposals exploring the role of the peripheral actor in times of war, particularly female non-combatants who are nonetheless directly affected by the traumas of war.«
