>Survivor paradigms through which literatures of trauma are read
>often presume a stable self that can be recovered. How and what
>does a postmodern subject survive, and is recovery possible or
>desired? How is selfhood in dialogue with culture in moments of

>existing theories of the survivor and to contemplate new approaches
>that acknowledge elements of postmodern culture.
>Theoretical essays and readings of specific texts/events/experiences
>are welcome for this SAMLA special session. Memoirs and
>autobiography must be in dialogue with critical discourse.
>Send 500-word abstracts to Rebecca Duncan, Meredith College,
