>Literary/Philosophical Groups and their Embedded Politics at 2006
>NEMLA annual convention, Philadelphia, March 2-5, 2006
>
>While the concept of modernism often invokes a 
>lone image of a flíneur, literary
>or philosophical groups invite us to go beyond the obsession of individual
>geniuses and to explore the dynamic politics as embedded in these exemplary
>groups. The panel invites papers which address the historical, political, and
>philosophical significances of various modern 
>literary and philosophical groups
>such as Woolf's Bloomsbury, C.S. Lewis and Tolkien's Inglings, Freud's "secret
>committee," Wittgenstein and the "Vienna Circle," the Tel Quel group, the
>literary "Leftbank," Dorothy Parker's Vicious Circle, and many others. Papers
>that engage the concept of modernity and formation of literary/philosophical
>groups from a philosophical, psychoanalytical, and political perspective are
>especially welcome.
>
>Please submit proposals of approximately 500 words and a short
