University of Texas at El Paso, Graduate Student English Association

In conjunction with the 30th Annual Literature at the University of Texas at El Paso, featuring Dr. Neil Campbell of the University of Derby, the Graduate Student English Association (GradSEA) invites proposals for panels or individual papers for a graduate conference entitled "The Global American West" that will take place at UTEP on March 26-28, 2015. Author of The Rhizomatic West and PostWesterns, among other major works, Campbell is a leading theorist of critical regionalism whose work reads the American West not as a stratified or constrained space, but as a ruptured and fluid discursive system.
