Tom Smith

Lifewriting Annual seeks critical and scholarly essays on lifewriting in
all its forms -- biography, autobiography, memoir, journals, diaries, and
works in other media. We are particularly interested in articles describing
and assessing scholarly resources for biographical writing, especially
collections of manuscripts and letters. We welcome hybrid essays combining
one or more lifewriting genres, e.g., memoir and biography, for a section
called "Crossings." We are also looking for reviews of recently published
biographies, autobiographies, and other works of lifewriting. Submissions
may treat works in any language or period, but must be written in English.

Deadline for 2006 issue: January 15, 2006.

Miller, Shawn

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:
