The William Carlos Williams Society invites abstracts for a panel of three 20 minute papers to be presented at the 2015 American Literature Association Conference (May 21-24, 2015; Boston, MA).
To mark the 90th anniversary of the publication of Williams's In the American Grain in 1925, this panel invites contributions that consider the importance and impact of Williams's take on American history. Largely dismissed and misunderstood by his critics on its appearance, how does its iconoclastic approach to history resonate with readers today?
Please send 250-word abstracts and a brief bio to Ian Copestake at email@example.com, no later than December 14th, 2014.

Greek capital Athens hosts the first International Pynchon Week since the release of his eighth novel, Bleeding Edge. Here on the edges of the Mediterranean, of the European Union, of Western History, we have an opportunity not only to discuss the new novel, but also to reconsider the outer limits and internal limitations of the whole field of Pynchon studies. Paper proposals on any aspect of Pynchon's work, life, thought and significance are welcome, but particular weight will be given to proposals that contribute deliberately to a fresh demarcation of these edges.
Topics might include
Call for Papers: Travel and Conflict in the Medieval and Early Modern World
Institute for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IMEMS) Aberystwyth-Bangor
Biennial conference, 3rd-5th September 2015, Bangor University
