CALL FOR PAPERS

 

2006 ALSC Conference, San Francisco, California, October 13-15 2006

 

The Association of Literary Scholars and Critics (ALSC) invites proposals
for papers and presentations to be considered for its twelfth annual
conference to be held at the Hotel Sir Francis Drake in San Francisco,
October 13-15, 2006. The conference program includes six panels and three
seminars. A description of one of these nine session topics appears below,
along with an e-mail address and other contact information for submissions.
Please bear in mind that there will be many more submissions than can be
accepted, and that the criteria may include not only the merit of the
individual submission but the range and variety of a session's
contributions. The pleasure of the chairs is to see how much stimulating and
valuable work is being done, the pain to be able to accommodate only part of
it in panel or seminar.

 

For a complete listing of session topics and information about how to join
the ALSC, visit our website at www.bu.edu/literary.

 

Submission form and deadline. Abstracts no longer than a paragraph or half a
page must reach the chair of the session by March 31. Except as explicitly
stipulated otherwise below, they should be submitted only by e-mail, to both
(1) the chair of the panel or seminar and (2) the Association's office at
alsc_at_bu.edu. On the e-mail's Subject line please give your name and other
information in the form, "ALSC 2006, [Name of Panel] abstract by [Your
Name]."

 

Panel

 

Literature and Environment: New Field, Old Field?

 

Scott Slovic (University of Nevada, Reno)

 

This panel will explore the place of ecological literary criticism
("ecocriticism") and environmental literature within contemporary literary
studies in the United States and abroad. Speakers may wish to consider the
significance of the latest trends in ecocritical practice and the literary
contributions of American and international environmental writers; and some
panelists may focus on the relation between contemporary scholarship and
more traditional examinations of "nature in literature." Send abstracts to
Scott Slovic, Department of English/098, University of Nevada-Reno, Reno, NV
89557. (slovic_at_unr.edu)
