Call for papers: New England MLA (NeMLA) 2015 46th Annual Convention 

Toronto; April 30-May 3, 2015

Deadline: Sept. 30, 2014 

Panel on "Representations of Lost Cities (Creative)"

The goal of this creative session is to discuss, among translators, authors, and critics, the multiple aspects involved in representing urban-centric literary texts and to celebrate the results with a multilingual reading. How do we represent a city that no longer exists? An underground city? A secondary city? A city that has never been seen? An unidentified city? A secret city?
