>Literary Criticism Discussion Circle: "Excess and Scarcity"
>South Atlantic Modern Language Association
>Atlanta, GA
>4-6 November 2005
>
>This panel will explore literary, cultural, historical, and 
>theoretical analyses of sites subject to the vicissitudes of excess 
>and scarcity.  What constitutes and who defines the boundary between 
>excess and scarcity?  Are they necessarily opposed or can they be 
>coincident?  What territories do they map?  What historical and 
>political interests determine acceptable levels of them? 
>
>Examples include but are not limited to sites where the extremes of 
>excess and scarcity are very apparent and highly contingent (say 
>upon location or class):
>
>-Issues of food (industries and discourses of weight, nutrition, 
>breast feeding, etc.)
>
>-Drugs and medicine (for instance, where resources are allocated to 
>treatment of relatively benign conditions for a Northern market 
>instead of deadly diseases plaguing the impoverished global South)
>
>-Love and sex
>
>Inquiries and one-page abstracts should be directed to Patricia 
>Ventura at [log in to unmask] or Ed Chan at 
>[log in to unmask] by 31 March 2005. 
>
>The Literary Criticism Discussion Circle sponsors an annual panel at 
>SAMLA.  Those accepted for the panel will need to join SAMLA by 1 
>July 2005.  Information regarding the conference and SAMLA is
