Southern Appalachian Student Conference on Literature 2010
c/o Department of English
East Tennessee State University
P. O. Box 70683
Johnson City, TN 37614;

Keynote Speaker: Professor Mark Noble of Georgia State University will discuss "The Classroom in Poe's 'The Man in the Crowd.'"

The SASCOL organizers intend for our participants to learn more of their options as English scholars. Being "Southern Appalachian" as a regional marker rather than a content indicator, the conference welcomes submissions addressing any area of literature. Cross-disciplinary in nature, the conference welcomes submissions from students in disciplines other than English, as long as their submissions address literature. While presentations can be about literature in languages other than English, we ask that the presentations themselves be in English. We invite undergraduate and graduate students to participate in our conference.

Abstract Submission Guidelines:

Students from any academic discipline are eligible to submit material to this conference, but the submissions must be about literature.
Essays may address literature from any genre, region, or historic period.

Abstracts of 250 words should reach our offices via post or email by May 13, 2010.
