Joyce Carol Oates famously asked, "Where are you Going? Where have you Been?" As the English profession continues to evolve, our conference will explore these questions.

 

We are particularly interested in proposals for full traditional panels including at least four presenters, roundtables of six to eight speakers, workshops, individual papers, posters, and presentations that consider these questions for the profession, for the discipline, for our areas of specialization, and for the larger society. What is our role as scholars, researchers, teachers and community members during a time of worldwide transition?
