>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
>organizationís 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 Womenís Literature.
>
>Although the organizers welcome seminar and panel proposals on any topic
>related to the organizationís 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 conferenceóincluding 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.
>

>There are no limits on topics, but please bear in mind these guidelines:

>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:
>

>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

>will locate one for you)
