The MELUS Panel at SAMLA seeks papers on "Mixing Cultures and American
Ethnicities"

In America, ethnic communities do not exist in a vacuum that precludes
interethnic relationships and influence. In fact, the United States'
ethnic variety has led to the creation and development of unique American
cultural ways within established ethnic communities because of this
crossing of cultural boundaries. This panel will focus on American
literature that considers the relationship between ethnicities and the
consequences of this interaction and of the shifting of ethnic boundaries.

A full range of approaches to and perspectives on the topic is encouraged.

Teaching In or About Prison

For a proposed panel on Teaching In or About Prison, I am seeking
abstracts for papers for the ASA Convention to be held in Oakland,
California (October 12-15, 2006). The ever-increasing U.S. prison
population has made the study of incarceration crucial to American
Studies. Many scholars have chosen to teach about incarceration from
a safe remove, and others have immersed themselves in the prison
experience by teaching prisoners. This panel, consistent with the
conference's "inside/out" theme, will seek to examine this
intersection of perspectives and pedagogies.

Please submit abstracts no later than January 15, 2006 to Quentin
Miller (qmiller_at_suffolk.edu).
