CFP - Division on Autobiography, Biography, and Life Writing, 2006 MLA

Here are the Division on Autobiography, Biography, and Life Writing topics for the 2006 MLA Convention. Please send your proposal to the person chairing the session; you can submit to more than one session, although if you're selected for both, I assume you'd be asked to choose one. If your paper is accepted, you will have to become a member of the MLA by April 1.
