full name / name of organization:
International Association for Literary Journalism Studies
CALL FOR PANEL PROPOSALS
"Literary Journalism: Perspectives and Prospects"
20-22 May 2010
The International Association for Literary Journalism Studies invites proposals for panels on Literary Journalism for the IALJS annual convention on 20-22 May 2010. The conference will be held at the School of Arts at Roehampton University in London, U.K.
The conference hopes to be a forum for scholarly work of both breadth and depth in the field of literary journalism. All research methodologies are welcome, as are papers on all aspects of literary journalism and/or literary reportage. For the purpose of scholarly delineation, our definition of literary journalism is "journalism as literature" rather than "journalism about literature." The association especially hopes to receive proposals related to the general conference theme, "Literary Journalism: Perspectives and Prospects."
The International Association for Literary Journalism Studies is a multi-disciplinary learned society whose essential purpose is the encouragement and improvement of scholarly research and education in Literary Journalism. As an association in a relatively recently defined field of academic study, it is our agreed intent to be both explicitly inclusive and warmly supportive of a variety of scholarly approaches.
