Reconsidering John Dos Passos

updated: 
Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 5:54pm
American Literature Association (conference); Victoria Bryan (panel chair)

In recent years, John Dos Passos has fallen to somewhat low priority in critical study, but the few publications that do exist since the 1970s are engaging and compelling and stand as proof that this author deserves further consideration in our field. This individual panel proposal for ALA's 2011 convention hopes to illustrate the value of continuing to engage in scholarly research, critical conversation, and/or pedagogical approaches to John Dos Passos in the 21st century. Papers of about 20 minutes/10 pages in length on various approaches to Dos Passos's work will be considered for inclusion on the panel. Please submit an abstract of about 250 to 500 words, a CV, and any requests for A/V equipment to Victoria M.

[update] Poe and Who? American Literature Association Conference, Boston May 26-29, 2011.

updated: 
Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 5:27pm
The Poe Studies Association

Poe and Who?
Teaching Poe can lead to many intriguing cultural and literary mash-ups. For example, classes have been taught on Poe and the Simpsons; Pop Culture and Poe; Poe and Roger Corman; Memento Mori and Poe; and Poe in the Writing Classroom. This panel invites abstracts on teaching Poe in combination with any other topic. What other writers might be paired with Poe? How can Poe be linked to contemporary currents in literature and/or culture? How would Poe work in a music or philosophy class? What materials can be shared to show the practicalities of teaching Poe as mash-up?

[UPDATE] Oklahoma State University English Conference

English Graduate Student Association

The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) at Oklahoma State University, an organization of English graduate students and faculty members committed to promoting student academic development and scholastic achievement, is currently accepting proposals for its annual graduate conference. The theme of this year's conference is "Transforming Words." In his 1969 work, The Way to Rainy Mountain, N. Scott Momaday asserts, "We have all been changed by words; we have been hurt, delighted, puzzled, filled with wonder." During the conference, we would like to explore the practical ways language functions to effect change. How can language overcome supposed barriers of race and gender?
