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

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.

The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott (1893-1963). Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, memoir, poetry, young adult literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We are especially interested in papers that investigate the process of canonicity, the literary networks to which Scott belonged, or the role of disability in her career, but all topics will be considered. Scott participated in various and major literary currents during her writing life, including Imagism, naturalism, and modernism, and she had a wide variety of literary mentors, including Lola Ridge, Theodore Dreiser, Waldo Frank, William Carlos Williams, and Jean Rhys, among others.

TRANS-AM :: Losing/Becoming Self

Individuals from around the globe travel to Louisiana early in the year to participate in Mardi Gras celebrations. Masks, costumes and reverie encourage participants to shed certain prefigured aspects of identity in order to become something new. Much of the excitement these traditions allow is rooted in the idea that one can undergo a personal, transformative experience by relinquishing a prefigured sense of self.
