Call for Papers: Popular Literary Landscapes

        The Popular Literary Landscapes panel of the 2006
Mid-Atlantic Popular Culture/American Culture Association Conference
welcomes abstracts of papers (200-250 words) that discuss literary
descriptions of the American landscape. The descriptions may be
factual or fictional, in poetry or prose; the focus may be on land or
seascape, city or countryside. The chair is open to any thematic
preference, but requires that the choice and treatment of subject
matter establish a connection between land/seascape descriptions and
the cultural ideals and values that inform them.
        Choices of AV requirements are limited to
DVD/VCR/monitor/audio cassette player/carousel and overhead
projectors/screen.

        Conference meets at the Wyndham Baltimore Inner Harbor Hotel
        Meting dates are 27-29 October 2006
