The difference between historian and poet is, according to Aristotle, that the one describes the thing that has been, and the other a kind of thing that might be. He sees a clear and evident distinction between a historian, who describes events and a writer, who invents them. This distinction has been the subject of debate over the last few decades with some calling it into question and others looking more closely at the relationship between the two. The debate has moreover taken place in the midst of rapid and radical changes brought on by the forces of globalisation eroding the national frameworks within which literature and history have for so long been viewed.
Linguistic discourse analysis: Introduction and structure
1.1 Defining discourse
The Society for American Travel Writing invites proposals for papers that examine the overlap between Travel Writing and other Genres for the 2011 American Literature Association Conference, May 26-9, 2011 in Boston.
Travel Writing has never been a coherent genre with tidy and easily identifiable formal characteristics. Indeed, depictions of travel exist in all manner of texts. The SATW invites papers that explore the formal differences between various genres of travel writing, such as biography and autobiography, nature writing, epistolary writing, poetry, the novel, and documentary and/or feature film.
The Society for American Travel Writing invites proposals for papers on the topic of "Eco-Travel Writing" for the 2011 American Literature Association Conference, May 26-9, 2011 in Boston.
In common parlance, ecotravel suggests environmentally conscious vacationing that is often coupled with service activities intended to clean up pollution or improve sustainability. While travel explicitly organized around environmental concerns may be a relatively new development, respect for alien environments and cultures was not invented in 1980. The SATW invites proposals for papers that explore forerunners to "ECOTRAVEL" that occur throughout American literary history.
