CFP - 6th Biennial International Auto/Biography Association Conference

The 6th Biennial International Auto/Biography Association ConferenceHonolulu, Hawai‘i
June 23-26, 2008
Conference Topic: Life Writing and Translations

The Center for Biographical Research and the International Auto/Biography Association invite scholars from around the world to attend the 6th IABA conference, which will be held at the East-West Center, next to the campus of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, in Honolulu.

Translation is central to all forms of representation; the theme for this conference is Life Writing and Translations, in the widest sense of the term. We welcome papers dealing with the following kinds of translation, and others as well:

Because our primary concern will be striking up and sustaining conversations between conference participants, papers should be limited to fifteen minutes in length, to insure time in all sessions for questions and full discussion. Panels on a single topic and submitted together are welcome. (Panels and sessions will have three presenters.) Given the theme of the conference, panels and individual papers may be conducted or delivered in the language of the participant’s choice—various arrangements will be made well before the conference to allow other conference attendees to participate. All participants should also inform the organizers about media requirements for presentations—DVD, live internet, visual projection, audio, and so on.

Abstracts for papers should be @300 words long. There should be an abstract for each paper in a panel presentation. The deadline for abstracts will be November 1, 2007. Though e-mail is preferred, abstracts can be submitted by mail or fax to the following numbers and addresses.
