31st Annual New Jersey College English Association Spring Conference
Saturday, March 29, 2008
Seton Hall University, South Orange, NJ

Papers on any aspect of humor in the American novel, especially in the 20th
and 21st century. All approaches welcome. Especially welcome are papers
considering novels written by women.

Presenters should consider delivering their work in a pedagogical manner,
rather than simply reading papers. Visual and rhetorical aids (i.e.,
handouts, illustrations) are encouraged, as is sharing work with other
panelists and distributing completed papers to the audience. For
suggestions, see: de Jonge, Julie Stephens “A Reflection on the Conference
Paper Format and Ideas for Change.” _Modern Language Studies_ 35.2, 2006.

Please send abstract and CV by Jan 2, 2008 to: Edward Shannon, Professor of
Literature, Ramapo College of NJ.
