Time in US Literature and Culture
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
Buffalo, New York
April 10-13, 2008

This panel seeks to explore the role of time in the US imaginary and to
develop the study of temporality as a foundation for thinking about
American literature and culture.

In crafting a submission, panelists might wish to consider questions of
duration, simultaneity, history, the present, or futurity in relation to
"the usable past," notions of progress, memory, Darwinian literary studies,
narratology, et cetera. Papers may explore any period or genre of US
