NATIVE AMERICAN LITERATURE: Individual
and Collective Memory in Native American Literature. Much Native American literature
has been firmly
grounded, at least by its critics, in the cultures out of which it has
come, with particular attention paid to myths, legends and other forms
of collective or cultural memory. At the same time, many Native American
authors have tried to grapple with the difficult and painful history
of Native American experience. We are seeking papers that consider the
role of memory—collective and/or personal—within Native American
literature; that consider the retelling of personal experience or oral
history in literature by or about Native Americans; that explore the
role of memory in preserving or transmitting collective or personal identity
through narrative; that remember personal incidents for the purpose of
surviving or preserving self and culture; that evaluate the accuracy
or inaccuracy of memory; papers that consider memory as an ethical act;
and papers that investigate the danger of nostalgia.

SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY LITERATURE: The
Other Speaks: Sci-Fi, Speculative Fiction and Fantasy from the Margins. As
genres, science fiction, speculative
fiction and fantasy have often been sites of contact and exchange in
which the Other is imagined and given a place to speak. However, these
depictions of otherness have ofen remained unproblematized and had historically
rarely come out of marginalized groups themselves. This panel seeks papers
that address the issue of marginalization—gendered, raced, or classed—from
the inside. We are interested in papers that consider the science fiction,
speculative fiction and/or fantasy of writers of color and /or women
writers; papers that are about works that are written from the point
of view of an other; papers that seek to explore the Other who doesn’t
speak but is represented; and papers that specifically address the role
of the Other in making speech, narrative, or self-image possible.
