Intertexuality: Conversations Between the Sheets
English Graduate Student Conference

March 30-31, 2007

Call for papers and panels:

"Conversations Between the Sheets" is concerned with the direct and/or indirect discourse between texts that takes place when authors (whoever an author may be—from a single writer or coauthors to a community of editors, publishers, booksellers, etc.) interact with each other—alluding, referencing, paraphrasing, quoting, borrowing, sharing, stealing, extending, challenging, or opposing each others' ideas. Whether it is in the form of support, abuse, or simply recognition of ideas between writers, texts converse with each other.

Title: Banned in Boston
Proposed Panel for the American Literature Association Conference
Abstract deadline: January 12, 2007
Conference: May 24-27 in Boston, MA

The phrase "Banned in Boston" came into widespread usage in the 1920s during a particularly active campaign to censure objectionable, offensive, and obscene works in the city sometimes called "The Cradle of Liberty." This proposed panel for the 2007 Meeting of the ALA will examine the politics of moral enforcement as played out in Boston over the centuries. What social, political, religious, and economic agendas are served through the practice of censorship? How does the goal of protecting the public measure against the values of artistic liberty and freedom of speech?
