Proposals sought for 20-minute papers on the connections, intersections,
and interactions between music and writing in the southern United States.
Papers might address the nature of narrative and lyric in southern
writing; oral traditions of song and chant; the role of the musician in
southern literature; the blues (or jazz) aesthetic in literature; or
southern writing and any aspect of musical expression. These suggestions
are not meant to be exhaustive—other approaches are welcome.

Please send abstracts of 300-500 words, along with any requests for a-v
support, to Barbara Ladd (barbara.ladd_at_emory.edu) by March 5, 2009.
Inquiries welcome. This session is sponsored by the Society for the Study
of Southern Literature.
