WLA Conference 2012, November 7-10, 2012

updated: 
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 2:20pm
Western Literature Association

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:

[UPDATE] DEADLINE EXTENDED - Debt: Money/Narrative/Belief (August 17-19, 2012)

Dalhousie Association of Graduate Students in English (DAGSE)

[DEADLINE EXTENDED]In her 2008 Massey Lectures, Margaret Atwood calls debt "that peculiar nexus where money, narrative or story, and religious belief intersect, often with explosive force." Today, we are facing an explosion of discourses foregrounding financial debt. Whether in the Euro Zone Debt Crisis, the Occupy Wall Street Movement, or rising student loan debt, narrative and debt cannot be decoupled, nor can they be detached from a given political or affective investment. In addition to the obvious economic concerns, we are also interested in widening the discussion of debt: How do literature and cultural products help us make sense of these issues?
