Call for Papers

Holocaust in Literature and Film

A Special Session panel to be presented at the
South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) Convention
November 14-16, 2003
Atlanta, Georgia

Contemporary holocaust and genocide studies are marked by general critical
divisions between "trauma theory" and "industry studies," and between
arguments for positioning the Nazi holocaust (which includes but is not
limited to the Judeocide) as a "paradigm case" for genocide studies and
those for repositioning the Judeocide at the margins of inquiry, even to the
point of rejecting it as any longer a meaningful category through which to
understand either the Nazi holocaust or countless other, historically and
geopolitically distinct global genocides. This panel invites papers which
analyze these divisions and theorize their academic institutional enabling
conditions, especially in terms of their political, ideological, historical,
and critical significance for the intellectual future of literary and film

E-mail 250-word proposals by February 14, 2003 to:
