The American Studies Graduate Committee at the University of Texas at Austin calls for papers for
its upcoming graduate conference, "The American Environment: Within and Without," to be held in
Austin on September 28-29, 2006.

"Environment" is a term which invites myriad interpretations in varied contexts. Our conference
theme urges participants to explore the American environment both inside and across these
different contexts. We encourage the consideration of all types of environments, including the
musical, literary, religious, political, psychological, natural, built, social, and transnational,
and those which merge or transcend these types.

"Monster Queens" in Literature, Television, and Film
   
   "Monster Queens" may be any female rulers associated with monsters or monstrosity. Whether they be literal monsters, non-human, or humans with monstrous inner natures, thus metaphorical ones (examples of "monster queens" might include Akasha, Queen of the Vampires, in Anne Rice's Queen of the Damned or Bavmorda, in George Lucas's Willow ), monstrous or "monster queens" figure significantly in our literature and popular culture. Topics related to these characters might include the following issues or areas: androgyny, femininity, gender and power, female appropriation of male roles, and ruler-subject relations.

Panel Title: Animals in the Literary West

Conference: Western American Literature Association, Boise, ID
October 25-28, 2006.

Western American literature is populated with horses, cattle,
buffalo, wolves, bears, coyotes, birds, and snakes--animals whose
presences help define Western narratives and who are essential to the
mythology of the West. This panel seeks presentations that
foreground the roles of animals in their interpretations of texts
about the American West.

For example, this panel is interested in presentations that consider:
