War has been one of the few constants in human history, waged by nations, tribes, and other factions for numerous reasons—some valid and noble, some questionable. This area will feature papers that explore the ways that wars—declared and undeclared, just and unjust, sacred and profane, fictional and "real"—have impacted the social, economic, technological, ideological, and other aspects of culture.

In our rapidly shifting culture, what defines the contemporary moment is fluid and impossible to pin down. This conference will look at the relations between newness, sameness, fluidity, and change in cinema and cinematic technologies from all eras. The cinematic apparatus itself is a technology of repetition and replication, and the effects of postmodern culture are marked by self-replication, simulation, and mediation. Postmodernism is about the now, and borrows from the surfaces of history while losing the history itself. Cinema and the cinematic is increasingly marked by intermediality of both culture and "text" and constant expansion of what these terms can mean.

The 2015 SAMLA Convention (Nov. 13-15) will he held at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center in Durham, North Carolina.

This panel invites conference papers that explore the reflexive relationship between contemporary (1975-2015) literature and popular music. Papers may focus on musicians that incorporate literary allusions or themes in individual songs or concept albums (The Mountain Goats, Nick Cave, The Hold Steady, Leonard Cohen, Sufjan Stevens, etc.), authors that incorporate frequent allusions to popular music in their work (Nick Hornby, Bret Easton Ellis, Alan Warner, etc.), or musicians that have also published fiction or poetry (John Darnielle, Sufjan Stevens, Leonard Cohen, etc).

The Illustrated Texts session welcomes papers as well as innovative or even illustrative presentations that interrogate the concept of illustration broadly construed. In addition to proposals that explore traditionally illustrated texts, this panel also invites proposals that question the illustrative nature of much of our own work. Does illustration "light up, clear up, or elucidate" our text as its etymology suggests or is it operating differently?
