**Extended Deadline! Deadline is now January 25th!**
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.

fin de siècle.

Seeking to explore literary iterations of that mood, the editors of After NAFTA: Contemporary North American Dystopian Literature encourage submissions about a variety of literary genres - novels, short fiction, or graphic novels (written in English or translated) - published by Canadian, American, and Mexican authors between 1994 and 2010.
