The Society for the Study of American Women Writers will host two panels at the American Literature Association Conference (May 2016, San Francisco). The two ALA panels aim to present the varied ways in which women, as critics, dramatists, educators, essayists, journalists, oral storytellers, poets, novelists, short story writers, and practitioners of both older and emerging forms, invent and reinvent the American literary and cultural landscape. This year's panels will both take up the theme of transnationalism.
Panel 1: Transnational Approaches to Early American to 19C American Women Writers
Panel 2: Transnational Approaches to 20C to 21C American Women Writers

This panel seeks papers that consider the role of objects in the production and study of Restoration and eighteenth-century drama. How might a consideration of the physical and material conditions of performance shed light on the texts through which we so often engage with the drama? What do textual artifacts reveal about production practices or even specific performances? Please send 300-word abstracts.
Deadline extended to September 20, 2015.

When Horace Engdahl, permanent secretary of the Nobel prize jury, proclaimed in 2008 that "The US is too isolated, too insular. They … don't really participate in the big dialogue of literature," many understood Engdahl to be chastising Philip Roth in particular, a leading contender in Nobel Prize discussions, who, despite his international appeal, has been perennially overlooked by the prize jury. To the contrary, translations of Roth's work are available in languages as diverse as Mandarin, Romanian, and Arabic, to name only a few. In his novels, Roth dialogues with such artists as Shakespeare, Chekhov, Edna O'Brien, Milan Kundera, El Greco and Jasper Johns. However, Roth's relevance for comparative studies is not limited to these exchanges.
