[Update] Tourism, Heritage, Identities (01/25/2013; ALA 05/23-26/2013)

Papers are invited for a proposed panel at the 2013 meeting of the American Literature Association in Boston (23-26 May, 2013).

I seek papers that explore heritage tourism, or tourism motivated by the desire to recover a lost cultural identity, either the traveler's own or that of another group. I welcome papers that deal with non-fiction travel writing, fiction, film, poetry, or theory.

Relevant issues may include:

Heritage and objectification: museums, photographs, souvenirs, etc.

Heritage and the touristic gaze

The usable or invented past

Globalization, diaspora, long-distance nationalism

Animal Studies panel at (dis)junctions 2013, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb. 11

updated: 
Sunday, January 6, 2013 - 3:44pm
University of Califrornia, Riverside

This year's (dis)junctions conference invites papers for a panel exploring the concept of "encountering" through the perspective of animal or animality studies. Since Derrida's theorization of the transformative possibilities inherent in an exchange of gazes with an animal other, animal studies has drawn attention to the ways that unanticipated and reciprocal encounters with other species shape our understanding of species difference and interspecies communication.
