Society for the Study of American Women Writers Annual Conference (2015)

For SSAWW's forthcoming 2015 conference on "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," we are assembling a panel focused on contested boundaries of race, class, and sexuality in women's nineteenth- and twentieth-century regional literature. Current papers for the session focus on contested gender roles in the work of New England authors Sarah Orne Jewett and Mary Wilkins Freeman, depictions of contested racial and regional identities in the work of antebellum antislavery novelist Mattie Griffith, and representations of the rural in the late twentieth century queer press.

Psychoanalysis and the International - ACLA 2015 Seattle (March 26-29, 2015)

In the history of ideas, psychoanalysis has often been understood as a Victorian, European discourse that, like other modern knowledge projects, expanded along an imperial trajectory, exporting its universalizing theory of the subject to South Asia, Australia, North Africa, and throughout the Americas. At the same time, however, the transnational diffusion of psychoanalysis has historically been driven by political strife and exile from European fascism, Soviet socialism, North African colonialism, and South American dictatorship.

Sound and Performance in Poetry of the Americas

This seminar considers the role of sound and performance in poetry of the Americas across a range of periods and movements. We are interested in case studies and theoretical discussions that consider musically inflected texts; archives of performance; graphical representations of sound on the page; uses of creoles and vernaculars; and methodological inquiries into the intersections of sound studies, performance studies, distant reading, close reading, and hemispheric studies.

Society for American Travel Writing at SSAWW 2015 (November 4-8 in Philadelphia) 15 December 2014 Submission Deadline

updated: 
Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 5:14pm
Society for American Travel Writing

The Society for American Travel Writing invites submissions for its upcoming panel at the triennial meeting of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers, November 4-8, 2015 in Philadelphia.

In keeping with the conference theme of "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," we welcome papers that explore the ways in which crossing ideological, political, economic, intellectual, and creative boundaries are elaborated in women's travel experiences and travel texts. Because the word "limen" suggests crossing thresholds, an inherent aspect of geographic movement, our panel seeks to investigate how the various mobilities of geography, politics, and identity meet and intersect in women's travel writing.

English Graduate Organization

The English Graduate Organization at the Univ. of Georgia invites papers in a wide range of disciplines for our annual conference this upcoming March 20-21 (panels 1/2 day Friday and a full day on Saturday). While we as an organization stress literary studies, we hope to foster an eclectic group that touches on a wide range of exciting, ongoing scholarship. Furthermore, scholars of any stripe are encouraged to apply. We wish to have every level of the academy represented, from distinguished faculty to beginning graduate students (or even promising undergraduates). Status should not be a factor (be it discipline or experience level): our focus is the promotion of high-quality, new, and innovative work.
