The editor is seeking memoirs of 1500-4000 words from male writers born between 1960 and 1975 who grew up in the South (in a state other than Alabama, for which there are already ample contributions) at the end of or after the Civil Rights movement.

[UPDATE] Barbara Kinsolver (ALA in San Francisco May 27-30, 2010)

Monday, January 11, 2010 - 12:17pm
Sarah Peters, Texas A&M University

In 2009 Barbara Kingsolver's The Lacuna, her first novel in almost ten years, was an instant bestseller. The author or co-author of thirteen books, Kingsolver has recieved both critical and popular acclaim and remains a prominent figure in contemporary American literature. I am soliciting paper proposals for a proposed panel at the American Literature Association in San Francisco May 27-30, 2010. The panel seeks to examine both Kingsolver's early contributions to American Literature as well as her newest works of fiction and non-fiction. This panel welcomes a variety of approaches to Kingsolver's work in any genre.

"Teaching the Tough Texts," South Central College English Association at SCMLA 2010 (October 28-30)

Monday, January 11, 2010 - 10:34am
South Central College English Association

The South Central College English Association welcomes proposals for 20-minute presentations to be delivered at the 2010 SCMLA Convention (October 28-30) in Fort Worth, TX. Our session is entitled "Teaching the Tough Texts," and we are especially interested in presenters who will share strategies for introducing structurally complex or controversial writings to undergraduates. For example, some panelists might offer guidance on leading students through the labyrinthine prose of Henry James or Homi Bhabha. Others might discuss how to teach novels such as Twain's HUCKLEBERRY FINN or Ellis's AMERICAN PSYCHO, books that many readers have, for various reasons, deemed offensive.
