Due to unforeseen circumstances, I have recently inherited responsibility
for organizing two sessions on Tristan-themed cinema at the International
Medieval Studies conference in Kalamazoo, MI, from May 4-7 2000. I need
proposals for 20-minute papers to fill two panels, one specifically on
Cocteau's "L'Eternel Retour" and another on "Cocteau and Beyond" (allowing
for papers on other Tristan-themed films). These sessions are jointly
sponsored by the International Arthurian Society-North American Branch,
the Tristan Society, and the Medieval Film Festival.
Because the Cocteau film "L'Eternel Retour" will be screened as part of
the medieval film festival, we particularly encourage paper proposals
dealing all or in part with that film. But papers on any Tristan-themed
film will be considered.
Although the official deadline for submission of abstracts for Kalamazoo
2000 is Sept. 15 (!), I have until Oct. 1 to finalize the panels, so please
let me know if you are interested but need a little more time to finalize
PLEASE NOTE: if you are emailing me an abstract, I'd be most grateful if
you could include it in the body of your text message rather than as an
attachment, which I have difficulty accessing. You can cut and paste a
text file into an email message relatively easily. Or simply fax hard
copy to the number below.
I'd appreciate hearing from you ASAP if you plan to submit, or if you have
suggestions of colleagues whom I could contact about these panels.
(Email addresses, institutional affiliations and/or phone numbers would
help me track them down.)
Kindly forward this email to anyone whom you think would be interested.
Many thanks--Debora Schwartz
