Emily Dickinson at SAMLA 2012

full name / name of organization: 
South Atlantic Modern Language Association convention

Conference theme: "Text as Memoir: Tales of Travel, Immigration, and Exile"

Panel Title: "Dickinson's (Inter)Textual Travels"

The Emily Dickinson International Society seeks participants for a roundtable discussion of Dickinson's manuscripts as tales of travel, immigration, and exile. This discussion might include both the manuscripts themselves and their circuitous history. By examining Dickinson's commitment to manuscript production, this discussion should reveal many telling glimpses into the unforeseeable travels one takes as a "supposed person" (L268).
We welcome traditional analyses as well as creative work that can be written, digital, or mixed media.

Please send 200-400 word proposals for participation in this discussion by July 10th, 2012 to Trisha Kannan at trisha.kannan@sfcollege.edu
