"Southern Outlaws," The 11th Biennial Conference of the International Association for Robin Hood Studies

June 16-17, 2017 at Auburn University at Montgomery

The theme for this two-day international conference is “Southern Outlaws,” and proposals are welcome on any aspect of “southern” outlawry, banditry, piracy, and other transgressive activities and movements. Such topics spanning the fields of outlaws of the Southern United States, Australia, and South America are particularly welcome. Papers are also invited that explore the metaphorical and spatial conceptions of a “southern” outlaw, especially bad outlaws and trickster figures, and the ways in which geographical and topographical features create and foster outlawry. Papers on the Robin Hood tradition are also welcome. Conference participants will enjoy a variety of peer-reviewed papers from a number of academic fields: literature, history, folklore, theatre, music, anthropology, sociology, geography, art history, and media studies.

We are now accepting paper proposals as well as proposals for fully formed paper sessions and round table sessions. Please download the appropriate form, complete it, and submit it by March 1, 2017. Acceptance of paper proposals will be done on a rolling basis. Undergraduate and graduate paper proposals are especially welcome.
