AMERICAN LITERATURE: A proposed panel for the American Literature Association Conference, May 24-27, 2012 in San Francisco.
The physical aspects of texts – their existence as textual artifacts – may assume a particular prominence that is independent even from the contents of the texts themselves. Circulated and contextualized as objects, texts and inscriptions may impart dual meanings, which may either be complementary or contradictory. As such, manuscripts, inscribed amulets, ornamental objects, and similar artifacts draw complex 'biographies' as the attention alternates between the artifact's textuality and materiality. The biographies of these artifacts invite a variety of interpretive and analytical models, the application of which is dependent on the different degrees of distinction
and integration between the two aspects.
The International Journal of Asia-Pacific Studies (IJAPS), an electronic journal published by Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) Press, is looking for articles for an issue on the theme: "Music and Performance in Asia."
The journal is a scholarly, multidisciplinary, internationally refereed publication focusing primarily on Asia (West, South, Southeast and East), Australasia and the Pacific Rim regions of the Americas (North, Central and South).
The publication date of this themed issue will either be January 2013 or July 2013. At this point, we're especially interested in papers on Japan, China or Korea.
The panel welcomes proposals that examine Australian, New Zealand and other Commonweath Bildungsromans. What are the differences between bildungsromans published at the beginning of the 20th century and bildungsromans published later? How do aboriginal authors employ the genre? What is the role of post-colonial and postmodern studies on Commonwealth bildungsromans? Though preference is given to Australasian literatures, Canadian and South African are also welcome. E-mail 250-400 word abstracts in body of email to Elizabeth Abele . Deadline extended to Oct. 10.
