Center of CUNY announces its annual conference, to be held at the CUNY
Graduate Center, New York, NY on March 26, 2004. Graduate Students are
invited to submit proposals for 15-20 minute presentations. Proposals for

constructions. Possible paper or panel topics include:

Sex/anatomical Love
Queer(ed) Love
Fetishism/the Love object
Absence and Love
The political, institutional and sociological regulation of Love
The Love of State/the State of Love
Love and power
Landscapes and geographies of Love
Poetic and narratological constructions of Love
Epistolary Love
Influence and aftertexts

separate cover sheet including your name, affiliation, address, phone
number, and e-mail address to:
