American Literary Tourism Anthology (Oct. 30, 2011)

Monday, February 7, 2011 - 3:01pm
American Literary Tourism

American Literary Tourism (Anthology)

Literary tourism has a long history in American culture. From visits to the grave of the fictional eighteenth-century Charlotte Temple, to the restoration of Salem's House of the Seven Gables as a turn of the century settlement house and tourist attraction, to competing twentieth-century Faulkner Festivals, literary tourism has become ingrained in American culture. Its currency is evident in the recent success of such events as the Zora Neale Hurston festival, held up as an exemplary example of how community revitalization can be achieved through the strategic development of cultural heritage tourism.

Dreaming of Babylon: The Work of Richard Brautigan

Monday, February 7, 2011 - 10:51am
Jill E. Anderson

Seeking papers to fill out a panel proposal on Richard Brautigan's work for MLA 2012.

This panel seeks to explore any aspect of Richard Brautigan's work--poetry or prose. His work has been largely ignored by the academic community so I seek people with an interest in Brautigan who wish to recover his work. Your readings could take any number of angles, but personally I am most interested in ecocritical, historical, and gender studies readings.
