Proposals are invited for 20-minute papers, comprised panels, and roundtable sessions, which consider any period or genre of literature about, set in, inspired by, or alluding to central and suburban London and its environs, from the city's roots in pre-Roman times to its imagined futures. While the main focus of the conference will be on literary texts, we actively encourage interdisciplinary contributions relating film, architecture, geography, theories of urban space, etc., to literary representations of London. Papers from postgraduate students are particularly welcome for consideration. While papers on all areas of literary London are welcomed, the conference theme in 2012 is 'Sports, Games, and Pastimes'.

Lubbock, Texas, is nicknamed "The Hub City" because it has historically been the crossroads of the vast, multicultural South Plains—home to Native peoples for 15,000 years, first dubbed the Llano Estacado (Staked Plains) by Coronado in 1540, and once referred to as the American Serengeti for its massive herds of buffalo, pronghorn, and deer. The WLA's 47th annual conference will take place at the Overton Hotel in Lubbock across the street from Texas Tech University. We will honor the careers of Distinguished Achievement Award winners Richard Slotkin and filmmaker and producer Joss Whedon, and engage with featured writers Annie Proulx, Christina Garcia, Barry Lopez, Naomi Shihab Nye, and others.

Highlights include:
