THE POE STUDIES ASSOCIATION is sponsoring TWO panels at the American
Literature Association Conference in Boston, MA, May 21-24, 2009.
This panel invites abstracts on any aspect of teaching Poe.
Possible topics include but are not limited to:
• Teaching Poe in the digital classroom
• Poe in a variety of pedagogical contexts, including survey
courses in World and American literature
• Poe in the 19th-Century literature seminar
• Poe in the writing classroom
Please send brief C.V. and 250 word abstracts for papers on these or any
topic related to teaching Poe to Susan Amper at
Jan. 15, 2009.
This panel seeks to offer some answers to the inquiry, What is the
current state of Poe studies in relation to critical theory/cultural
studies? Abstracts for papers applying theory to any of Poe's works, or
responding to recent theoretical readings of Poe's writings are equally
welcome. Send abstracts (250 words) to Marcy Dinius at
by Jan. 15, 2009.
