Conference - MLA Convention in Seattle, Washington, USA

Dates of the conference - January 9th-12th 2020

Poe, Islands, Archipelagoes

Poe Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 15, 2019

The Poe Studies Association will sponsor a session at the 2020 MLA Convention in Seattle on “Poe, Islands, Archipelagoes.” Islands are central to some of Edgar Allan Poe’s works—think “The Island of the Fay,” the later chapters of Pym, the barrier island setting of “The Gold-Bug”—but they also play important roles in other Poe texts in which they are not blatantly visible—for example, the orangutan in “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” is brought to Paris from Borneo. This panel will engage with the currents of archipelagic American studies to reassess how islands, oceans, and archipelagoes function in Poe’s literary corpus.

Speculative Fiction – SAMLA – November 8-10, 2019

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under the category is that there is some “unrealistic” element, whether it’s magical, supernatural, or a futuristic/technological development: works that fall into the category stray from conventional realism in some way.   For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from China Miéville to Margaret Atwood to Philip K. Dick. This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more.
