>CACLALS invites proposals for papers and panels at our next annual
>conference to be held in May 29 - 31, 2003 at Dalhousie University.  The
>overarching Congress theme is Conflict and Cooperation, with three
>sub-themes:  Intersections of Local, National, and Global Issues; Tensions
>in Representing Justice; and Struggles of Wealth and Creativity.
>
>We hope to present an interdisciplinary program consisting of members'
>papers, guest speakers, joint sessions with ACCUTE and other related
>associations, special sessions organized by members, an Aboriginal
>Roundtable, and a plenary on Postcolonialism, mergers and partitions;
>compromise and coercion; negotiation and (ir)resolution; civil wars and
>cease-fires; and the immigrant dilemma in an increasingly nationalistic
>climate.
>
>Our sessions are particularly valuable in these troubled times in global
>politics, and we invite current scholarship and lively dialogue,
>encouraging interdisciplinary approaches, activist voices, and varied
>viewpoints.  In keeping with our postcolonial focus, we are interested in
>the many aspects of conflict and cooperation, some of which are based on
>social and political affiliations and shifting alliances.  These changes
>are reflected in various ways in literature, and we would like to attract
>scholarly literary work dealing with global, national, and regional
>issues, as well as with such sources of conflict and identity even within
>families as religion, gender, race, and sexual orientation.
>
>Those wishing to present papers should submit a proposal of 250 - 500
>words and a bio of approx. 100 words to reach the CACLALS office at
>Kwantlen University College no later than November 15, 2002.  We ask that
>papers be not longer than 20 minutes (about 10 pages of test).  Please
>note that proposals will be considered from paid-up members of CACLALS
>only.  The papers will be blind vetted by a sub-committee appointed by the
>new executive.
>
>If you wish to organize a special session or a panel, please write to
>Robert Fleming describing the session, listing the proposed participants,
>including a brief bio of each, and offering abstracts of the papers to be
>read or of the topics to be discussed.  Proposals for papers and panels,
>as well as general inquiries or suggestions, may be sent electronically or
>by snail mail to Robert Fleming, Department of English, Kwantlen
