This panel seeks papers examining comparative Ethnic Studies in a
transnational or international framework. Questions and concerns can
include but are not limited to: How is the transnational and comparative
impetus behind, for example, Asian and Asian American Studies relevant to
the future of American Studies? How might an Afro-Asian based critique of
American race discourse reconfigure interdisciplinary approaches to
comparative racial formation. What are the critical intersections linking
American race discourse with Area Studies, and how does this
intersectionality serve to recontextualize current debates about
globalization and transnationalism?

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:
