call for papers - mla 2009

The MLA conference this year has a call for papers which mentions the Nights.

I'll see what I can cook up before the March 1 deadline although it centers on European Medieval Lit.

Here is the entire posting:

Subject: Call for Papers: Islamic Genealogies
Palimpsest: Islamic Genealogies of Medieval European Literature

Was Chaucer’s Parliament of Fowles a late manifestation of Attar’s work, Boccaccio’s Decameron of One Thousand and One Nights , or Dante’s epic of Muhammad’s Mi`raj? Comparatist reevaluations of literary antecedents.

Abstracts by 1 Mar to
