In keeping with the 2006 conference theme, "Cultural Roundup", the 2006
Regular Session on Australasian Literatures at SCMLA will focus on

traditions have cross-fertilized, interconnected, and come into conflict
in the Australian and South Pacific regions. Topics include, but are not
limited to: Christianity and its articulation in Australasia; migrant or
expatriate writers; New Zealand emigre writers in Australia (Jean
Devanny, Douglas Stewart, Stephen Oliver); gender, sexuality, and
cross-cultural relations; indigenous Australian texts; Maori texts in
either English or indigenous languages and their relation to other
Polynesian literature. Abstracts should be sent to Nicholas Birns at by 30 March 2006. The conference will take place
October 26 to 28, 2006, in Fort Worth, Texas.
