Our first round of Regular and Affiliated Group CFPs are now live on our website! Please visit https://samla.memberclicks.net/samla-87-cfps to look through our weekly updated list of panel proposals.
We are still accepting CFP proposals as well.
SAMLA 87 will take place November 13th through 15th, 2015 in Durham, North Carolina. Our topic, "In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts" invites interdisciplinary session proposals that investigate the relationship literature and language hold with their fellow arts.
This is an open topic session, but we especially seek papers that explore the intersections of literature and politics in the Medieval and early modern periods. Please e-mail abstracts to Ashley Bender by March 31.
