"'The Plains' as a Unique Place in Literature"; MAASA Conference; Tulsa, OK; April 1-3, 2012

Friday, December 2, 2011 - 12:31pm
Brian Brooks / Northeastern State University, Broken Arrow

Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play August: Osage County depicts an Oklahoma family dealing with the hardships of death, discord, substance abuse, and other problems while confined by "the Plains." Letts sets the play in a claustrophobic space, a house with the windows covered, to make a statement about life on the plains. His study about family requires the audience to evaluate whether or not the Plains is a distinct place, or if the concerns are of larger import.

Across disciplines academics and artists are researching and creating practices that are highly contextual (determined by the environment in which they are located), exploring ways of articulating specific environments, spaces or places.

Myths and Fairy Tales Area *Deadline Extended*

Friday, December 2, 2011 - 7:31am

Southwest/Texas Popular Culture & American Culture Association's 33rd Annual

In the Myths and Fairy Tales Area, panels are now forming on topics related to all areas of myth and fairy tale and their connections to popular culture. To participate in this area, you do not need to present on both myths and fairy tales (one or the other is perfectly fine), but we have seen that bringing both genre categories into conversation has led to extremely valuable and stimulating conversations.

Call for Papers

Mapping the field of the erotic is a complex and frustrating endeavour; as something which permeates lived experience, interpersonal relationships, intellectual reflection, aesthetic tastes and sensibilities, the erotic is clearly multi-layered and requires a plethora of approaches, insights and perspectives if we are to better to understand, appreciate and define it.
