Sixth American Studies Leipzig MA-Level Graduate Student Conference
April 28-29, 2018—Deutsches Literaturinstitut Leipzig, Germany

*Deadline: Dec. 15* - American Literature in the World Graduate Conference, Yale University, April 6, 2018

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 10:18am
Yale University, Department of English
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Junot Díaz, Yusef Komunyakaa and Carolyn Forché, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.
