CFP: Rhetoric and Science

(dis)junctions: lost in translation
April 7-8, 2006

This panel is concerned with the question of how science and scientific
dialogues have influenced national rhetoric. Some questions we seek to
examine are:
          How has our vision of the place of science in everyday secular society
changed in the past fifty to one hundred years, or even in the past twenty?
        How has science affected American political rhetoric?
        How have the rhetorics of science and religion shaped each other through
the debate over Darwinism and intelligent design?
        How has the rhetoric of science altered the way we understand or
conceptualize works in the humanities?

Miller, Shawn

Deadline extended to 20 January.

Abstracts invited: "Breaking New Ground on Andrew Lytle," a proposed
session for the American Literature Association's annual conference in
San Francisco, 25-28 May 2006.

After a decade of near-obscurity, Andrew Nelson Lytle has reemerged as a
pertinent figure in southern literary history. In the work of Richard
Gray, for instance, Lytle's career serves as a handy example of how a
southern cultural and literary orthodoxy came to be. The fiction,
however, remains largely neglected. To begin a remedy, this session
seeks new interpretations and new approaches. Possible topics for papers
might include:

CFP- TEACHING MEDIEVAL LITERATURES: PILGRIMAGE AND THE

There are many different journeys that take place in
Medieval literatures. Some are deliberate and
intentional, such as the pilgrimage. Others are less

I am soliciting abstracts for a planned special session submission for
the 2006 Modern Language Association convention in Philadelphia, Dec.
27-30.
The subject, "The Early Modern Transatlantic," reflects the growing
recognition in both American and European literary studies that
cultures on both sides of the Atlantic between roughly 1580 and 1800
were profoundly shaped by the effects of contact and colonization. To
what degree do both Europe and America come to see themselves in
international terms in this period? How do Europeans as well as early
Americans begin to understand themselves as world citizens? How can we
understand local political, economic, or literary events in

White Writing Red, Red Writing White

I invite abstracts for a proposed panel that explores literature by
white women encountering Native Americans and literature by Native
American women encountering whites. Ideally, the panel will cover a
range of periods and genres; I am particularly interested in material
written before 1960. Possible topics include inter-racial marriage,
"civilization" and the frontier, teachers and students, religious
conversion, national and tribal identity.
