The 41st Annual College English Association Conference, March 25-7, 2010-San Antonio

College English Association

Conference Theme:

"And in my voice most welcome shall you be." As You Like It 2:4.87

San Antonio. Images of the River Walk merge with the memories of its most famous location, the Alamo. Remember it, the voices from the past call out, and we do.

Those voices on opposing sides of its walls, representing Santa Anna and Sam Houston, spoke for two distinctly diverse cultures. And within those cultures were voices and texts that influenced the actions during that struggle – significant cultural markers of time, place, and being.

Urban Places: The Literary Ecology of American Cities (Abstracts by 9/30)

Monday, September 28, 2009 - 2:39pm
Karen E. Waldron / Northeast Modern Language Association Conf. April 7-11, 2010

This proposed panel follows on a very successful seminar discussion conducted at NeMLA 2009 entitled: "The Literary Ecology of American Literature: Constructions of Place." It proposes to continue wrestling with the significant questions of methodology in studying literature of and about the environment through a particular focus on the literature of cities. This work is critical to studies of literature and environment, an area which has not been theorized adequately. The need to draw effectively on other disciplinary knowledges and how they manifest in linguistic form is central to this effort and the ultimate goal of the project is an edited collection of essays on the literary construction of place within the American context.
