Media in 19th and 20th Century Literature
Conference papers are being sought after exploring Media in 19th and/or
20th Century Literature for The University of Tulsa’s 4th Annual English
Graduate Student Conference. While the focus of this year’s conference at
the University of Tulsa is Media in the 19th and/or 20th century
literature, proposals on any topics related to this call will be

relationship with media and digital studies because it is a partner with
Brown University on the Modernist Journals Project. Several of our
graduate students here work on the MJP and are a part of a periodicals
studies group. TU is also the home of the James Joyce Quarterly and Tulsa
Studies in Women’s Literature. The conference will be held in Tulsa,
Oklahoma, from March 6-7, 2009 at the University of Tulsa. For more
