CFP: Australasian Currents (3/16/07; SCMLA, 11/1/07-11/3/07)
In keeping with the 2007 conference theme, "Currents", the 2007
Regular Session on Australasian Literatures at SCMLA will focus on
"Australasian Currents." Our panel seeks to explore the current
conversation occurring between people from the Australian, New Zealand,
and South Pacific regions.
Of particular interest is how people from the Australasian region
are using one or more form/s of creative expression (such as poetry,
fiction, narrative, film, music, art, etc) as a vehicle to represent
themselves and/ or others.
Topics include, but are not limited to how these creative
endeavors have influenced and/ or critiqued religion, race, gender,
sexuality, socio-economic status, minority histories, and
cross-cultural relations. Papers discussing migrant and/ or expatriate
writers of the region are also welcome.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words (including title) should be
sent to Nicholas Birns at birnsn_at_newschool.edu AND Belinda Wheeler
at wheeler3_at_iupui.edu by 16 March, 2007. Please include
institutional affiliation and contact information, including preferred
The conference will take place November 1-3 in Memphis, Tennessee.
