The Kurt Vonnegut Society (www.vonnegutsociety.net) invites proposals for papers to be presented at the 2012 American Literature Association in San Francisco, May 24-27. Presenters need not be members of the Kurt Vonnegut Society (but we certainly hope they will join). Please send a 150-word abstract for a 15-minute presentation, along with a brief CV, to Robert Tally at robert.tally@txstate.edu by January 15, 2012.

The topic is open, and we welcome papers on any aspect of Kurt Vonnegut's life, work, and legacy. Presenters may focus on a particular text or cover a range of Vonnegut's writings. We are always interested in papers that look at ways of teaching Vonnegut, and we encourage participation from graduate students, independent scholars, emerging critics, and interdisciplinary researchers. Of course, we also welcome contributions from experienced Vonnegut scholars and literary critics. Please address queries to Robert Tally at robert.tally@txstate.edu.
