>
>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 
>crisis? The devastation in our Gulf Coast invites us to consider 
>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, 
>[log in to unmask]  Selections and responses will be completed by 
>4/10.  Panelists must agree to join SAMLA by June 1.
