Dear colleagues and Professors,
At the time of his death in November 2016, Leonard Cohen had published two novels, eight poetry collections, and several volumes of selected works. In his better-known role as a singer, he had produced fourteen studio albums (which he once claimed to be hardly different from his books of poems), including You Want It Darker, released in October 2016 just before his death. Beloved by fans around the world for his “golden voice” and its signature mixture of the holy and the profane, Cohen was mourned at the moment of a perceived shift in global politics. Cohen died on the eve of the 2016 presidential elections and did not see Donald Trump’s victory.
This session welcomes submissions on activism in Pre-1900 American Literature. Proposals addressing the SAMLA 90 conference theme, Fighters from the Margins: Sociopolitical Activists and Their Allies, are especially welcome. By June 1, 2018, please submit an abstract of 300 words, a brief bio, and any A/V requests to Joshua Boyd, Trevecca Nazarene University, at JTBoyd@trevecca.edu.
Date: 6th July 2018
Keynote speakers: Professor Cheryl Exum (University of Sheffield) & Professor Rhiannon Graybill (Rhodes College)
