Abstracts are invited for the Keats-Shelley Association's affiliated session to be held as part of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) conference, November 8-10, 2013, in Atlanta, Georgia. Papers might explore various types of networking, broadly defined, associated with the Keats-Shelley circle (including such figures as John Keats, Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, Leigh Hunt, and William Hazlitt). Papers might address networks of friendship among the circle's members, networks of publishing, or networks of meaning. Other papers of interest might discuss new meanings gleaned from twenty-first-century digital networks related to the circle's members. Paper proposals addressing the conference theme are especially welcome, but those whose topics are related more generally to the Keats-Shelley circle also will be considered. The conference theme is "Cultures, Contexts, Texts, Images: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds" (see for more information about the conference). Please send a 300-word (max.) abstract and a 100-word (max.) bio to Ben P. Robertson ( by June 15, 2013.
