This panel welcomes papers considering the role and function of liminality, liminal personas, and liminal landscapres in works of American Literature. Paper topics are not limited to, but may include, the application of Arnold van Gennep, Victor Turner, Pat Mora, and Gloria Anzaldua. Papers should explore the connection between liminality and the American understanding of land, race, gender, identity, genre, or reality (though other considerations are welcome).
This regular session panel welcomes papers that consider Southern American literature from any genre or era. Papers that engage with the conference theme, "Forces of Nature," are particularly encouraged.
The 2014 SCMLA Annual Convention will be held on October 18-22 in Austin, TX. Abstracts for the Southern American Literature session should be 250-300 words and must be submitted via email attachment by March 31. Please email submissions to Kelly Clasen at email@example.com.
