SOCIETY FOR CRITICAL EXCHANGE
Jung’s Red Book: Confronting the Unconscious through Word and Image
In 1913, at a moment of personal and professional crisis, Jung began recording a series of visions and
fantasies in what would become an extended "confrontation with the unconscious." The Red Book, newly
published last year after decades kept under a shroud of family secrecy, is rife with all the chaos and horror
one might expect an honest accounting of the unplumbed depths of the human psyche to contain. The book
has another striking feature as well, however: it is visually stunning. Comprised of flowing calligraphic text
illuminated by richly colored and densely symbolic images, it is on its own terms an aesthetic object of
great precision and beauty. This panel welcomes papers that explore the visual dimension of Jung's text in
any aspect. Possible topics might include, but are not limited to, the relations between textual/visual
aesthetics and the unconscious; the use of an essentially medieval literary form to delineate a profoundly
modern search for self; the practical importance of creativity and design in charting the hidden landscapes
of human experience, such as those designated by the terms "unconscious," "psyche," and "soul"; the role
of aesthetic expression in the development of the human psyche; and the dynamic interplay between word
and image, including their interchangeability (i.e., text that functions visually as image, and images that
function narratively or informationally as text). While this panel is particularly interested in papers
exploring The Red Book, other papers addressing Jung's work, particularly the visual dimensions of his
texts will also be considered.
Please submit (e-mail preferred), one-page proposals and abstracts, along with any requests for audio-visual
support, to Nicholas Miller, Loyola University Maryland, at nmiller@loyola.edu.

CHILDREN'S LITERATURE DISCUSSION CIRCLE
Rewriting Traditional Literature: Transformations of Fairy Tales, Folklore, and the Unearthed
Undead
Textual adaptations of traditional literatures have long been written and discussed. Recent incarnations,
such as Disney’s film The Princess and the Frog (2009) or Michael Buckley’s The Sisters Grimm series
illustrate our continued fascination with such literatures. Other authors, such as Ryan C. Thomas with The
Undead World of Oz or W. Bill Czolgosz and his text Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim,
have chosen to dig deep into the tales of the undead to breathe new life into such stories. This panel seeks
to explore the transformations such tales have undergone and how such retellings impact the lore regarding
such works. In keeping with the conference theme, ―The Interplay of Image and Text,‖ essays that engage
adaptations into a video game, comic book, graphic novel, and/or film formats are particularly encouraged,
though all papers that address the above concerns are welcomed. Papers addressing retellings from all time
periods, not just those pertaining to contemporary adaptations, are also sought.
Topics may include, but are not limited to, magic-uses, belief in/practice of, access to such power;
gendered spaces and performance of gender; revisions of ―powers‖ of the undead/supernatural; myth and
spirituality; the impact of colonialism/the colonized; lost adaptations; and, rewritten texts for
older/younger audiences. Please submit inquiries and/or abstracts of 250-300 words to Amberyl Malkovich,
Concord University, at amalkovich@concord.edu.

ENGLISH I –A (MEDIEVAL)
Tell Me a Story: Interpreting the Theme of Poverty in Medieval Literature and Illustration
The collapse of the economy has led many to turn their attention toward wealth, power, and the poor. With

in literature and illustration of the medieval period. Questions concerning poverty in the medieval period
are many. Presentations could explore any of the following: How was poverty defined or described in this
time period? How was poverty portrayed in devotional or saintly literature and illustration? How was

Fatal Attractions: Homoeroticism in the Novels of Patricia Highsmith and Their Film Adaptations
In line with this year’s conference theme, we invite papers on gay and lesbian themes in Highsmith’s
novels and their representation, or absence, in film adaptations of her work. In Bruce R. Smith’s famous
study of homosexual desire in Shakespeare’s England, the author distinguishes categories of gay
interaction, including ―Combatants and Comrades,‖ ―The Secret Sharer,‖ and ―Master and Minion‖: these,
or other definitions, such as ―Friend,‖ ―Sister,‖ or ―Other Self‖ might well be applied to Highsmith’s
characters, such as Bruno Anthony from Strangers on a Train, or the infamous Tom Ripley, with their fatal
attraction to ―others.‖ Please submit a 250-300 word abstract or complete papers, either by post to Dr.
Linda Rohrer Paige, Georgia Southern University, Department of Literature and Phil., P. O. Box 8023,
Statesboro GA 30460-8023 or via e-mail at lpaige@georgiasouthern.edu. Additionally, Dr. Paige can be

LITERARY CRITICISM DISCUSSION CIRCLE
Word, Image, and Performance
The panel engages with instances of orality as they emerge from the interplay of text and image in the
realms of art and literature. While the pursuit of meaning is inevitably bound up with the visual—with the
act of looking at a piece of sculpture, rock engravings, or words on a page—to interpret the aesthetic object
is, at the same time, to measure its participation in an intersubjective discursive space that yields elements
of embodied and performed meaning. Inspired by scholars such as Erving Goffman, Dell Hymes, and
Judith Butler, the panel explores the ways in which the object’s graphic, sonic, and physical appearance as
well as its positionality relative to the reader/viewer extend the notion of text beyond the limits of signs and
signification to include traces of an interaction among human and non human bodies. The panel welcomes
contributions that emphasize the visualization of narrative voice and perspective, that bear on their dialogic
and performative dimensions, and that reassess the body’s central role in expressing and receiving aesthetic
meaning. Topics include, but are not limited to, the relationship between word and performance, the

What does image mean in Anglo-Saxon literature? How can we define the intersection of text and image
without first defining this term? This session seeks papers that will shed light on the meaning of image in
Old English texts. The topic is purposefully broad so as to invite multi-disciplinary perspectives. We
welcome proposals from specialties including, but not limited to, literary theory, medieval history, politics
in Anglo-Saxon England, linguistics and philology, and eco-literature. Please submit abstracts of 250 to
300 words either to Elizabeth Canon, University of Wisconsin at La Crosse, at canon.eliz@uwlax.edu or

WOMEN'S CAUCUS PROFESSIONAL FORUM
Standing Still? Addressing Gender Disparities in the Profession
Chair: Regina B. Oost, Wesleyan College,
Roundtable Discussion
In 2009 the MLA's Committee on the Status of Women in the Profession published "Standing Still: The
Associate Professor Survey," a report that documents continuing disparities that shape the careers of
women in academe. Among the study's findings: women take longer to attain the rank of professor than
their male colleagues; women spend less time on research and more time on course preparation and grading
than men: and, men report greater job satisfaction than women at all ranks. The report (available at
www.mla.org and reprinted in Profession 2009) offers several recommendations that will serve as the
starting point for our roundtable discussion. The session will open with panelists offering remarks on
measures their institutions have taken or might take to improve women's status at all academic ranks. Case
studies, personal narratives, success stories, and cautionary tales are welcome. Remarks might focus on,
but are not limited to, the following: mentoring, establishing clear and equitable guidelines for promotion,
faculty development, equitable allocation of service responsibilities, training in leadership and academic
administration. Panelists will be asked to limit remarks to ten minutes so that we have ample opportunity
for conversation.
For more information, please contact Dr. ReginaOost at either roost@wesleyancollege.edu or via post to
Dr. Regina B. Oost, 4760 Forsyth Road, Macon, GA 31210.

Special Sessions

       POSTER PRESENTATIONS: VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF SCHOLARLY WORK
           2010 SAMLA Calls for Papers – Updated September 7, 2010
                     SAMLA 2010 Conference: November 5-7, 2010 in Atlanta, GA
                  Notice! More calls for papers have been added.
If the date for submissions has passed, we encourage you to contact the chair to confirm the session is full.
                            Note that many chairs have extended their deadlines.


In addition to traditional paper sessions and roundtables, through the poster
presentation session, SAMLA welcomes visual presentations as well. The subject
matter for the proposal may be in any area related to languages and literature,
including the special focus: "The Interplay of Text and Image." This topic invites
presentations that explore the cross fertilization between text and image through a
variety of traditional and modern means--including film, art, illustration,
photography, and visual rhetorics. The topic especially lends itself to the “poster
presentations” session because of the emphasis on the visual. Please know that
while there is a special focus, we welcome and encourage proposals outside of this
topic area as well. We also would be open to visual displays that reach beyond the
limits of a “poster,” including photography, art, illustration, electronic media or
other formats and designs.

The visual representation should serve to explicate the researched topic. In the
proposal for this session, author(s) are encouraged, but not required, to explain how
their research will manifest itself in the presentation.

Examples of how a poster presentation may be utilized for our disciplines:
 Examining the staging of a particular play,
 Tracing the origins of a symbol or metaphor within a text,
 Presenting research on illuminated manuscripts,
 Providing data on methods and their effectiveness, and
 Charting linguistic trends within a particular community.

Poster presentations are frequently utilized in the sciences to effectively convey
research and data.
Presenters are asked to visually represent their findings and conclusion on a poster
in a designated space. By standing or sitting by the poster, researchers are able to
interact with those interested in their work. While this form of presentation is new
in the study of literature, composition/rhetoric, and linguistics, the Program
Committee believes this method will create new opportunities for discussions about
literature and language, and may spark innovative ways of thinking about the field.

Presenters will be required to be present for a designated two-hour period during the
convention when the poster display will be available to attendees. Typically, the
session takes place at the same time as one of the receptions at the convention to
allow for high visibility and attendance. Computer display equipment and other
technology may be used but must be provided by the participant.

Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words describing the intent and
overall theme of the presentation to session chair David Parker, English
Department, Gardner-Webb University, at dparker@gardner-webb.edu.

Intertextuality in the Works of Caryl Phillips
Over the course of his nearly thirty-year career as a writer, the Caribbean/black British writer Caryl Phillips
has received considerable attention for his unique literary aesthetic that involves the fragmentation and
juxtaposition of multiple story lines in any given text. But Phillips has also been consistent in his use of
intertexuality, for in his fiction and his non-fiction, he has made extensive and explicit use of a wide range
of historical and literature sources. While Phillips' intertextuality never goes the way of pastiche or "literary
cannibalism," it is a critical component of his prominent themes and interests in history, in identity, and in
the effects of exclusionary practices across race, space, and time. This panel welcomes papers that examine
Phillips' intertexuality in general or in relation to particular texts. Please send 250-word abstracts to Renée
Schatteman, Georgia State University, at schatteman@gsu.edu.

Revisiting Haiti in the Light / Works of Aimé Césaire
Haiti is the lost cradle and the pariah of the New World. Her disregarded epithets ‖La Perle des Antilles‖,
the land of the Caribs / Tainos / Arawaks, the land of Emperors or the ―Seminal Brawn of the Americas‖
are fast becoming the morphology of an obsolete lexicon for the nowadays writers, journalists, and
reporters of the ―Sensational Media.‖
The creation of this tiny denuded country was brought about by an uncanny virtuoso and noble-mindedness
that was not expected from a group of displaced African slaves. And yet, their edified valiance in the birth
of Black Liberty, — ―Haiti where Negritude rose for the first time and stated that it believed in its
humanity,‖ says Aimé Césaire in his Notebook of a Return to the Native Land — or the glimmer of their
pioneer torch of Black Freedom seems to be muffled in the land of ―The Sensational Media‖. For, TV
reporters, journalists and writers seem so reticent to go beyond the established ―idée reçue‖ and so willing
to emit in unison and ad nauseam: ―Haiti is the poorest country in the Western World.‖
Hence the primary focus of this special session is to highlight and bring attention to these fundamental
questions that have been unjustly overlooked: who were these early pioneer civil rights leaders in the
Americas? What were their contributions and why are these pioneers fading today in the collective
consciousness? Why the sublime diligence and the prowess of Toussaint Louverture, Jean-Jacques
Dessalines, Alexandre Pétion, Boisrond -Tonnerre, Capois-La-Mort, Jean-Pierre Boyer, Henri Christophe
and Faustin Soulouque (etc.) do not get the recognition they so deserve?
Paper proposals might include investigation of Aimé Césaire’s writings as meaningful approaches vis-à-vis
recognizing Haiti’s contributions to what Césaire celebrates, understands and coins as NEGRITUDE: an
indigenous Haitian seed that the Haitian Founding Fathers dared to plant in the History book in January1,
1804. Please send abstracts of 300 words to Max Adrien, Hamline University, at

Žižek, Image, Text
This session invites submissions that critically examine, assess, extend, and make use of the multiple ways
in which the work of the Slovenian philosopher, Slavoj Žižek, enriches our understanding of the interplay
of text and image. Proposals should consider the extent to which Žižek’s engagement with film, art, new
media, and phantasy, unravels the complex and intricate relationships between verbal texts and visual
images, and clears a new space for reading text and image with and against each other. Proposals must
represent work not previously published or presented; proposals grounded in approaches other than
Lacanian are especially welcome. Please send abstracts of 300 words either by post to Dr. Jamil Khader,
Associate Professor of English, The English Department, Stetson University, Deland, FL 32733 or via e-
mail at jkhader@stetson.edu.
