MSA 7 - Chicago, IL, November 3-6, 2005:

UPDATE: The Conference Website is now live at www.luc.edu/msachicago.
It can also be accessed from the Modernist Studies Association Website
(http://msa.press.jhu.edu/).

CALL FOR SEMINAR, PANEL, and ROUNDTABLE PROPOSALS

Deadline for Submission of Seminar Topics: February 28, 2005

Deadline for Submission of Panel Proposals: May 9, 2005

Deadline for Submission of Roundtable Proposals: May 9, 2005

Please note:

* All who attend the MSA conference must be members of the organization
with dues paid for 2005-6. (MSA membership runs from October to
September.)

* Because we wish to involve as many people as possible as active
participants, MSA does not permit multiple appearances on the program.
That is, one cannot give papers in two sessions, or be both a seminar
leader and a panelist or roundtable participant. However, panelists,
roundtable participants, and plenary speakers who also wish to
participate in a seminar or a "What Are You Reading?" session may
certainly do so. And of course one may chair a session and also appear
elsewhere on the program.

* MSA rules do not allow panel or roundtable organizers to chair their
own session if they are also speaking in the session. Organizers are
encouraged to identify a moderator and include this information with
their proposals; the MSA Program Committee is also able to help you
secure another conference attendee's service as moderator.

After the following calls for seminar leaders, panels, and roundtables,
please see at the end of this message announcements for additional
conference events.


1. CALL FOR SEMINAR PROPOSALS

Deadline: Monday, February 28, 2005

Seminars are one the most significant features of the MSA conference.
Seminars are two hours in length. Participants write brief "position
papers" (5-7 pages) that are read and circulated prior to the
conference. With no more than 15 participants, seminars generate lively
exchange and sometimes produce networks of scholars who continue to work
together beyond the conference. The 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.


Please note that this is the call for seminar *leaders*. Sign-ups for
seminar participants will take place on a first-come, first-served basis
starting in mid-April.

Seminar Topics

There are no limits on topics, but past experience has shown that the
more clearly defined the topic and the more guidance provided by the
leader, the more productive the discussion. To scan past seminar topics,
go to the "Conference Archives" 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 be submitted via email and must include the
following information. Please assist us by sending this information in
exactly the order given here:

* Use as a subject line: MSA 7 SEMINAR PROPOSAL / [LAST NAME OF SEMINAR
LEADER] (e.g., MSA SEMINAR PROPOSAL / GORMAN)

* List the seminar leader's name, institutional affiliation,
discipline, position or title, mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail
address

* Provide a brief curriculum vitae (including teaching experience) for
the seminar leader

* Give a brief description (up to 100 words) of the proposed topic

Submit proposals by February 28 to:

Ann Mattis, Conference Assistant
[log in to unmask]

Seminars will be selected in mid-March 2005.


Leading a Seminar

Seminar topics will be listed on the conference website in late March
with instructions on how to enroll. Effective seminars have followed a
variety of models, and seminar leaders will be given a menu of best
practices derived from the experience of previous leaders.

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 double-spaced pages). MSA will provide guidance,
but so long as the focus remains on the papers submitted by
participants, leaders are free to use the two-hour time period as they
see fit).

* Set firm deadlines, no later than September 12, 2005 for the actual
exchange of papers

* Exchange and read papers during the 7-8 weeks before the conference


2. CALL FOR PANEL PROPOSALS

Deadline: Monday, May 9, 2005

There are no limits on topics, but please bear in mind these
guidelines:

* We encourage interdisciplinary panels and discourage panels on single
authors.

* In order to encourage discussion, we prefer panels with three
participants, though panels of four will be considered.

* Panels composed entirely of participants from a single department at
a single institution are not likely to be accepted.

* Graduate students are welcome as panelists. However, panels composed
entirely of graduate students are less likely to be accepted than panels
that include degreed presenters together with graduate students.


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

* Use as a subject line: MSA 7 PANEL PROPOSAL / [LAST NAME OF PANEL
ORGANIZER] (e.g., MSA 7 PANEL PROPOSAL / GORMAN)

* Session title

* Session organizer's name, institutional affiliation, discipline,
position or title, mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail address

* Chair's name, institutional affiliation, discipline, position or
title, and contact information (if you do not identify a chair, we will
locate one for you)

* Panelists' names, paper titles, institutional affiliations,
disciplines, positions or titles, and contact information

* A maximum 500-word abstract of the panel as a whole

* Brief (2-3 sentence) scholarly biography of each panelist

3. CALL FOR ROUNDTABLE PROPOSALS

Deadline: Monday, May 9, 2005

Unlike panels, which generally feature a sequence of 15-20 minutes
talks followed by discussion, roundtables gather a group of participants
around a shared concern in order to generate discussion among the
roundtable participants and with the audience. To this end, instead of
delivering full-length papers, participants typically deliver short
position statements in response to questions distributed in advance by
the organizer, or they take turns responding to prompts from the
moderator. The bulk of the session should be devoted to discussion. No
paper titles are listed in the program, only the names of participants.

Other MSA roundtable policies:

* Roundtables may feature as many as 6 speakers

* We particularly welcome roundtables featuring participants from
multiple disciplines, and we discourage roundtables on single authors.

* Panels composed entirely of participants from a single department at
a single institution are not likely to be accepted.

* Graduate students are welcome as speakers. However, roundtables
composed entirely of graduate students are less likely to be accepted
than roundtables that include degreed presenters together with graduate
students.


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

* Use as a subject line: MSA 7 ROUNDTABLE PROPOSAL / [LAST NAME OF
ROUNDTABLE ORGANIZER] (e.g., MSA 7 ROUNDTABLE PROPOSAL / GORMAN)

* Session title

* Session organizer's name, institutional affiliation, discipline,
position or title, mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail address

* Moderator's name, institutional affiliation, discipline, position or
title, and contact information (if you do not identify a moderator, we
will locate one for you)

* Speakers' names, institutional affiliations, disciplines, positions
or titles, mailing addresses, phones, faxes, and e-mail addresses

* A maximum 500-word rationale for the roundtable

* Brief (2-3 sentence) scholarly biography of each speaker

Send proposals by May 9 to:

Ann Mattis, Conference Assistant
[log in to unmask]

Roundtables and Panels will be selected in mid-June.


ADDITIONAL CONFERENCE EVENTS: "WHAT ARE YOU READING?"

Last year in Vancouver, the MSA introduced a new kind of session, "What
Are You Reading?" 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 forum consisted of 8 to 10
participants and a moderator. Led by the moderator, each participant
reported for a few minutes on a 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. Time permitting, moderators
then led discussions  in which participants could seek clarifications,
draw connections, and propose further related reading.

A major goal of "What Are You Reading?" is to facilitate the sharing of
exciting new scholarship (or the "rediscovery" of older scholarship) and
to foster interdisciplinarity by exposing participants to work in
modernist fields other than their own. Open only to those who register
for them in advance, these sessions were widely considered a success and
will be repeated in Chicago.

"What Are You Reading" is not intended 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 5 September to be included in "What Are You Reading?"

You will be notified of the time and location of your forum in early
October. 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! Given the uncertain supply of moderators,
places are limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served
basis.
