40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26 - March 1, 2009

Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Ada involves authorial deception on multiple
levels. Nabokov believed that the job of the author was not to portray
reality, but to create it, and that is what both he and his protagonist,
Van Veen, do in Ada. Papers discussing the author’s role in the
relationship between art and reality in Ada will be considered. Please
send submissions (as MSWord attachments) to Sarah Kingston,

Percival Everett is one of the most gifted African American/American
writers working today. In a brilliant career that spans over twenty-five
years, Everett has written sixteen novels, three short story collections,
one children’s book and one highly acclaimed collection of poetry. Yet,
unlike his contemporaries John Edgar Wideman and Charles Johnson, there
has been a dearth of serious critical attention given to this most
important author. This collection of essays seeks to remedy this
oversight. Perspective topics include:

DEADLINE EXTENDED

CFP SAMLA 2008 Convention : “Readers, Writers, and Communities in Early
Modern English Literature”

Textual and Bibliographical Studies Session

Papers are invited that explore the formation of communities of readers and
writers in English literature. How do writers respond to one another in

textual features of books? How are the social, intellectual, or political
needs of communities met by the texts they read and write? This panel will
explore the textual means by which literature contributes to the formation
of community.
