The South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) Women's Studies session invites papers that explore the 2011 conference theme, "The Power of Poetry in the Modern World," and its connection to Women's Studies, broadly defined. Presentations may address, among other topics, poetry in the Women's Studies classroom, poetry as feminist intervention, poetry and the construction/exploration of gender, and any other topics exploring intersections of gender, race, sexuality, and class in light of the conference theme. Additionally, proposals on any other aspect of women's and/or gender studies and its intersections with pedagogy, literature, rhetoric and composition will be considered if there are not enough proposals focused on the conference theme.
Please submit proposals (up to 350 words) with institutional affiliation and contact information via email to Laura Davis, Kennesaw State University ( by June 10, 2011; include "SAMLA Proposal" in the subject line.
