>Deadline extended! New proposals welcome!
>Women's Caucus of the Midwest Modern Language Association
>2005 Conference, Nov. 10-13, Pfister Hotel, Milwaukee
>Forty years ago when we began to talk about "the poetry of rock,"
>the work of several (usually male) songwriters got a lot of serious
>attention and English-major-style analysis. Since then we've seen an
>expansion of ways of reading and of ideas about text. What
>texts--literary, musical, visual--have rock women been reading and how
>do these texts influence their writing--words, music or both? What
>does a close reading of an important song (or two) do for our
>understanding and enjoyment? What can we learn about these writers'
>creative process and quality of mind? Finally, what special reading
>and writing happens when the source text comes from another rock woman?
>Papers will examine specific works closely, trace sources, and draw
>250-word abstracts by April 30 to
