War, Literature, & the Arts panel:

This panel invites papers on (new) frontiers in war and the arts. Is the frontier myth still relevant to the war genre? What new textual frontiers such as blogs and web videos are veterans and critics exploring? What new theoretical or methodological approaches are being taken to the war genre? How is the new frontier of women in combat reshaping the war zone and the American military?

Abstracts/Proposals due March 26, 2010.

Email the abstract/proposal in the body of the message or as a Word attachment to me at gawright@samford.edu.
