MSA 8—OUT OF THE ARCHIVES
19-22 October 2006
Tulsa, Oklahoma

CALL FOR SEMINAR, ROUNDTABLE, AND PANEL PROPOSALS

http://www.utulsa.edu/jjq/msa8

The 2006 meeting of the Modernist Studies Association will take place at 
the Downtown Doubletree Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma from 19-22 October. 
Founded in 1999, the MSA is devoted to the interdisciplinary study of 
the arts in their social, political, cultural, and intellectual contexts 
from the late nineteenth through the twentieth century. The 
organization’s annual conference regularly brings together in excess of 
500 scholars from a variety of disciplines and features an engaging mix 
of keynote addresses, small seminars, panel presentations, and 
roundtable discussions. This year the event will be hosted by the 
University of Tulsa with generous financial support provided by the 
National Endowment for the Humanities, the James Joyce Quarterly, the 
Modernist Journals Project, and Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature.

Although the organizers welcome seminar and panel proposals on any topic 
related to the organization’s focus, particular preference will be given 
to those which consider the ways in which visual, literary, cinematic, 
journalistic, personal, financial, musical, and other sorts of archives 
have begun to alter the structure and boundaries of aesthetic modernism. 
Detailed information about the conference—including updated calls for 
proposals, housing arrangements, travel information, and details 
regarding subsidiary events--can be found on-line at 
http://www.utulsa.edu/jjq/msa8 . All email queries should be directed to 
the conference organizers at [log in to unmask]

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

* All who attend the MSA conference must be members of the organization 
with dues paid for 2006-2007. (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.



CALL FOR SEMINAR PROPOSALS

Deadline: Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Seminars are one the most significant features of the MSA conference. 
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. Seminars are two hours in length.

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-March, coinciding with registration for the conference.

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 
<http://msa.press.jhu.edu/archive/archive.html> on the MSA website, 
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: SEMINAR PROPOSAL / [LAST NAME OF SEMINAR 
LEADER] (e.g., 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 Tuesday, February 28, 2006 to:

Seminars will be selected mid-March 2006.



CALL FOR PANEL PROPOSALS

Deadline: Tuesday, May 9, 2006

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: PANEL PROPOSAL / [LAST NAME OF PANEL ORGANIZER] 
(e.g., 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

Send proposals by Tuesday, May 9, 2006 to:

[log in to unmask]

Panels will be selected mid-June.



CALL FOR ROUNDTABLE PROPOSALS

Deadline: Tuesday, May 9, 2006

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: ROUNDTABLE PROPOSAL / [LAST NAME OF ROUNDTABLE 
ORGANIZER] (e.g., 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 Tuesday, May 9, 2006 to:

Roundtables will be selected mid-June.
