Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

March 17, 2010

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Call for papers: MLA Yiddish Literature Panel
From: Amelia Glaser <amelia.glaser at gmail.com>

The MLA Yiddish executive committee for Yiddish is still accepting 
presentation abstracts for a panel on "Yiddish in Life 
Narratives:Biography, Autobiography, Bildungsroman" to take place at the 
MLA convention in January 2011. How does Yiddish figure in life narrative, 
from autobiographies in Yiddish to Yiddish themes in other genres.

If interested, please submit an abstract for a 15-minute presentation to 
Amelia Glaser (amglaser at ucsd.edu) or Ken Frieden (kfrieden at syr.edu). The 
deadline for abstracts for this panel has been extended to March 20, 2010.
