Emily Dickinson at SAMLA 2012

South Atlantic Modern Language Association convention

Conference theme: "Text as Memoir: Tales of Travel, Immigration, and Exile"

Panel Title: "Dickinson's (Inter)Textual Travels"

The Emily Dickinson International Society seeks participants for a roundtable discussion of Dickinson's manuscripts as tales of travel, immigration, and exile. This discussion might include both the manuscripts themselves and their circuitous history. By examining Dickinson's commitment to manuscript production, this discussion should reveal many telling glimpses into the unforeseeable travels one takes as a "supposed person" (L268).
We welcome traditional analyses as well as creative work that can be written, digital, or mixed media.

Echoes of Home: Bringing Home to Work

Call for Proposals:
As academics, we often feel disconnected from the outside world and even from our roots, our homes--where we're from. We feel like impostors--sometimes at work, sometimes at home. This placelessness often felt in academia manifests in graduate school when, as Donald Troop recently discussed in The Chronicle of Higher Education, grad students can feel "they're somehow not smart enough or that they're fooling people—that they feel like impostors." Maybe these feelings are common in times of transition (home-to-graduate-school, graduate-school-to-Assistant-Professor), but for some of us, that transition seems neverending.

Cultures of Exchange and Exchanges of Culture: 16th Annual WIP (Work-in-Progress) Conference. 24th-25th August, 2012.

updated: 
Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - 10:39pm
School of English, Media Studies and Art History, The University of Queensland, Australia.

The 2012 Work in Progress (WIP) Conference aims to draw on criticism, comment, knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm about the highly multiple phenomenon of exchange in the humanities and the arts. As a counterpart to culture's strong individual aspect, exchange works, often somewhat experimentally, to twine differing social, aesthetic, imaginative, theoretical, economic, and political strands of activity and thought. The conference calls for contributions from and attendance by researchers, postgraduates, and honours students working in various disciplines and with regard to different historical periods.

Interested researchers are invited to submit abstracts with connections to this year's general theme.

Although the conference theme of Debt is particularly apt in the case of George Saunders, respondents may also wish to consider the significance of issues such as…
