In keeping with the 2006 conference theme, "Cultural Roundup", the 2006
Regular Session on Australasian Literatures at SCMLA will focus on
"Australasian Crossings"{ and explore the ways in which various cultural
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
nicbirns_at_aol.com by 30 March 2006. The conference will take place
October 26 to 28, 2006, in Fort Worth, Texas.
