We seek proposals for an approved panel for the 2015 NEMLA conference in Toronto.

This panel is devoted to the work of William T. Vollmann. The sheer quantity and diversity of Vollmann’s work have established him as an important voice in contemporary letters but have also rendered him an intimidating and elusive figure for readers. Providing both an introduction to Vollmann for novices and rigorous scholarship for aficionados, this panel will assess Vollmann’s place within American and global literatures. Please submit 300-500 word proposals through the NEMLA website.
