>Critical Fidelity: A Society for Critical Exchange session at the
>Northeast Modern Language Association Convention in Baltimore, 1-4
>March, 2007.

>There appears to be great diversity among people who are scholars,
>critics, theorists, or other practitioners of the modern languagesóthat
>is, among professionals who write and speak about literature and the
>other arts, history and culture, theory and philosophy, and so on in
>language-focused disciplines. As members of this multiplicitous, indeed
>conflicted group, how might we think about what we are faithful to, or
>have faith in, or keep faith with? Texts, principles, history, people,
>culture, institutions, truth, language, rights, discipline,
>interdisciplinarity, the good, oneself, etc.? The question of fidelity
>itself is questionable, indeed, perhaps not meaningful, or fair, or
>germane, or even worth asking. Is there any way to generalize about the
>topic, or is it necessarily a matter of disunity? The purpose of this
>session, then, is to explore the question as well as its various
>answers, which involves seeking the conditions of possibility both for
>asking and for answering the question.

>Abstracts for twenty-minute papers due 15 September 2006 to Scott
>DeShong, [log in to unmask] (preferred) or alternatively Quinebaug
>Valley Community College, 742 Upper Maple St., Danielson CT 06239, USA.

>Besides the abstract, a proposal must include the following:
>
>Presenter's name and institutional affiliation
>Email address
>Postal address
>Telephone number
>A/V requirements (if any)

>For the complete Call for Papers for the 2007 NeMLA Convention, please
>visit www.nemla.org. Interested participants may submit abstracts to
>more than one NeMLA panel; however, each panelist can only present one
>paper at the convention (although convention participants may present a
>regular scholarly paper and also present at a creative session or
>participate in a roundtable).
