Call for Papers: Evolving Faces: Identities and the Printed Page(Conference). 
Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Dates: (July 29 - August 1, 2004) 

Identity and its changing face find their most evocative and dramatic 
representation and portrayal on the printed page. Texts of all genres
have, through the ages, created identities which, invariably, mirror the 
political, social, cultural and economic transformations of their time.
Looking at identity in and through the printed page enables a rethinking of 
our evolving identities, a matter that has become increasingly urgent
in these times of tremendous change. Suggested topics, which by no means
cover all areas of interest to the conference, might include; 

---- national identity in a multicultural context 
---- English Language and identity 
---- teaching identity through literature 
---- inherited resources, constraints and identity 
---- publishing and the limits of the printed page 

Submit an abstract by February 1, 2004 for  a 20 minute paper, stating how 
you interpret the theme of the conference and if you would like to participate in one of the subtopics listed above. Abstracts should not be more than 200 words with a brief bio. Send your abstracts to: maclals-AT-silverfishbooks.com as MS Word email attachments. For details and updates please go to www.silverfishbooks.com/KLLitFest2004
