CFP - Midwestern Conference on Literature, Language, and Media (MCLLM)

The Midwestern Conference on Literature, Language, and Media (MCLLM) is hosting its annual conference on March 30 and 31, 2007.   The conference will be held at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.  We would like to solicit proposals for 20 minute papers from scholars at all career stages, from beginning graduate students to established and senior scholars.

The confirmed keynote speaker for this year's conference is Toril Moi, James B. Duke Professor of Literature and Romance Studies at Duke University, author of *Sexual/Textual Politics: Feminist Literary Theory* (1985)*,** Simone de Beauvoir: The Making of an Intellectual Woman *(1994), and* What Is a Woman? And Other Essays* (1999)*. * Her latest book, *Henrik Ibsen and the Birth of Modernism: Art, Theater, Philosophy *, will be published in September 2006.

MCLLM invites papers on all areas of literary, language, and media studies, ranging from Medieval and Renaissance studies to popular culture and technology studies.   We especially welcome proposals for papers that innovatively treat the study of feminist theory and women's writing, the interconnections between literature and philosophy, and 19 th and 20thcentury European literature.  Individual or panel (3-4 people) proposals are welcome.

The deadline for submissions is December 1st, 2006.  Please include a cover page with your name, affiliation, mailing address, and email address.  Accepted contributors will be notified via email by January 1st, 2007.
