deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

In keeping with the annual theme, “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers,” this panel seeks to explore the relationship between duality, broadly conceived, travel, and writing about travel. We seek to interrogate the ways in which travel writing serves as a discursive engagement with multiple dualities, including self and other, authority and subordination, as well as style and content. Submissions from any time period will be considered and papers that explore a broad spectrum of genres, disciplines, and geographic regions will be given special consideration. Papers that address any approach to the conference theme are welcome. Potential topics and themes include (but are not limited to):

Friday, March 15, 2019
