Dear Prof. Lauer,

Saludos.  Below you can find the CFP for all three Comedia sessions for the 2016 MLA Convention at Austin, TX.  If you could please post it in the Comedia listserve, we will be very grateful.

Thank you, Prof. Carrión.

The MLA Forum on 16th- and 17th-Century Spanish and Iberian Drama invites proposals for papers to be considered for inclusion in one of its three sessions.  Current members of MLA; those submitting abstracts for the third session must be members of GEMELA as well.

1.  Primal Scenes of the Comedia.  [Guaranteed Forum session] How does knowing and/or understanding primal scenes contribute to the writing and reading in- and of the Comedia?  Papers analyzing, interpreting, illustrating, or commenting dreams of fathers; repression of women/mothers; terrible mothers; abjection; production and reproduction; queerness; mise en abîme; rape; and/or sexual violence will be taken into consideration.  250-word abstract and brief CV by 1 March.
