MSA 6 - Vancouver, BC  October 21-24, 2004
CALL FOR SEMINAR AND PANEL PROPOSALS

Deadline for Submission of Seminar Topics: Monday, February 23, 2004

Deadline for Submission of Panel Proposals: Monday, May 3, 2004


Please note:

*       All  who attend the MSA conference must be members of the
organization with dues paid for 2004.

*       MSA rules do not allow participants to lead a seminar and
present a paper at the same conference. Participants may, however,
present a panel paper and participate in a seminar, or chair a panel and
lead a seminar.

*       MSA rules do not allow panel organizers to chair their own
session.  Organizers are encouraged to identify a moderator and include
this information with their panel proposal, but the MSA Program
Committee is also able to help you secure another conference attendee's
service as moderator.
Please see the announcement of MSA's new event, "What Are You Reading?", at the end of this message.



CALL FOR SEMINAR LEADERS
Deadline: Monday, February 23, 2004

Participation of conferees in seminars is one of the most significant
features of the MSA conference. Seminars are small-group discussion
sessions for which participants write brief "position papers" that are
read and circulated prior to the conference. Seminars generate lively
and valuable exchange during the conference and in some cases have
created a network of scholars who have continued to work together. The
seminar format also allows most conference attendees to seek financial
support from their institutions as they educate themselves and their
colleagues on subjects of mutual interest.

Seminar Topics
There are no limits on topics, though seminars that address the
conference theme of Other Modernisms/Modernism's Others are particularly encouraged. Past experience has shown that the more clearly defined the topic and the more guidance provided by the leader, the more useful the discussion has been to people's individual projects.

If you would like to know what kinds of seminars have been selected in
the past, go to the "Conference Archives" page on the MSA website
(http://msa.press.jhu.edu/archive/archive.html), click the link to a
prior conference, and then click on "Conference Schedule" or "Conference Program." You'll find seminars listed along with panels and other events.


Proposing a Seminar

Seminar proposals must include the following information. Please assist
us by sending this information in exactly the order given here:
* Use as a subject line: MSA 6 SEMINAR PROPOSAL / [LAST NAME OF SEMINAR LEADER]
* List the seminar leader's name, institutional affiliation, discipline
or department, mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail address
* Provide a current curriculum vitae for the seminar leader
* Give a brief description (up to 100 words) of the proposed topic
* Note: Seminars are two hours in length
Submit proposals by February 23, 2004 to:
Kate Scheel, Department of English, Simon Fraser University
Email: [log in to unmask]

Seminar proposals must be submitted by email.

Seminars will be selected in late March 2004.


Leading a Seminar

Seminar topics will be listed on this website in late March with
instructions on how to enroll in the seminars. To promote discussion,
the size of seminars is limited to a maximum of 20.

Leaders may, at their option, invite one or two individuals to join the
seminar in some special role. Some leaders will wish to share the work
of reading and responding to papers with the invited participants;
others will simply want to assure a high standard of discussion by
involving scholars whose work they know to be important for their topic.
Please note that invited participants will not be specially listed as
such in the conference program; nor will MSA cover their registration
fee and travel expenses.
E-mail addresses for all seminar registrants will be provided to seminar
leaders in May.

At that time, leaders should:

* Initiate communications by e-mail, introducing themselves and
providing addresses to all participants
* Set guidelines for the seminar, which might include questions to be
addressed, reading to be done, and a specified length for the position
papers (normally 5-7 pages)
* Set firm deadlines, no later than September 3, 2004 for the actual
exchange of papers
* Exchange and read papers during the 6-7 weeks before the conference
* Plan the seminar format (MSA will provide guidance, but leaders are,
within reasonable limits, free to use the two-hour time period as they
see fit)



CALL FOR PANEL PROPOSALS
Deadline: Monday, May 3, 2004

There are no limits on topics. Panels that address the conference theme
of Other Modernisms/Modernism's Others are encouraged. Particularly
welcome will be panels that focus on Canadian modernism; Pacific Rim
modernisms; African-American modernism; global modernisms; gendering modernism; queer modernism; modernism and identity; and modernism and nationality.

Proposals for panels must include the following information. Please
assist us by sending this information in exactly the order given here:

* Use as a subject line: MSA 6 PANEL PROPOSAL / [LAST NAME OF PANEL ORGANIZER]
* Session title
* Session Organizer's name, institutional affiliation, discipline or
department, mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail address
* Chair's name, institutional affiliation, discipline or department, and

contact information (if you do not identify a moderator, we will locate
one for you)
* Panelists' names, paper titles, institutional affiliations,
disciplines or
departments, and contact information
* A 250-word abstract of the panel as a whole

MSA policy on panels:
1. No participant may present more than one paper at one conference, and
no participant may both present a paper and lead one of the conference's seminars.
2. We do not accept proposals for individual papers.
3. We encourage interdisciplinary panels, and discourage panels on
single authors.
4. We encourage panels with three participants. Panels of four and
roundtables of five or six will, however, be considered.
5. Panels composed entirely of participants from a single department at
a single institution are not likely to be accepted.
6. MSA does not allow panel organizers to chair their own session. If a
panel proposal does not include information about a moderator, we will
assume you need us to locate one for you.

Send panel proposals by May 3, 2004 to:
Kate Scheel, Department of English, Simon Fraser University
Email: [log in to unmask]

Panel proposals must be submitted by email.

Panels will be selected in early June.



NOTICE OF NEW CONFERENCE EVENT: "WHAT ARE YOU READING?"

In accordance with its goal of continuous innovation in conference
programming, the MSA will introduce a new kind of discussion group at
the Vancouver conference. "What Are You Reading?" is designed to take
advantage, in a productive new way, of the presence in one place of
modernist scholars from many locations, institutions, and fields.

Each ninety-minute "What Are You Reading?" forum will consist of 8 to 10 participants and a moderator. Led by the moderator, each participant
will report for a few minutes on a recent scholarly or critical book in
modernist studies, sketching the work's content and explaining why she
or he found it exciting to share with other scholars. After all have
presented, the moderator will lead an open discussion in which
clarifications can be sought, connections drawn, and suggestions for yet
further reading offered.

A major goal of "What Are You Reading?" is to foster interdisciplinarity
by exposing participants to work in modernist fields other than their
own. Each forum will therefore be designed to maximize diversity of
specialty, ideally bringing scholars of visual art together with
literary critics, musicologists together with historians, students of
European culture together with experts on the Pacific rim, and so on.

"What Are You Reading?" is meant to facilitate the sharing of exciting
new scholarship. It is not intended primarily as a venue for discussion
of primary texts or works, for self-promotion, or for the enacting of
intellectual conflicts. Participants will therefore be asked not to
present on primary texts or works (though new editions and catalogues
are welcome), their own publications, or scholarship they did not
substantially admire.

To participate, all you will need to do is check the appropriate box on
your MSA registration form and name a book you might be interested in
presenting. MSA registration will begin mid-April; look for
announcements at that time. Please note that you will have to register
by 1 September to be included in "What Are You Reading?"

You will be notified of the time and location of your forum in late
September. There is no need to submit any proposal or paper in
connection with this event, nor do you need to contact your moderator in advance. Simply check the box, receive notice of your time and location, and show up ready to share a book!

As MSA Vancouver marks a trial run for this event, places are limited,
and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. If the
event is as successful as hoped, more meetings will be added in future
years.
