Deadline extended to 20 January.

Abstracts invited: "Breaking New Ground on Andrew Lytle," a proposed
session for the American Literature Association's annual conference in
San Francisco, 25-28 May 2006.

After a decade of near-obscurity, Andrew Nelson Lytle has reemerged as a
pertinent figure in southern literary history. In the work of Richard
Gray, for instance, Lytle's career serves as a handy example of how a
southern cultural and literary orthodoxy came to be. The fiction,
however, remains largely neglected. To begin a remedy, this session
seeks new interpretations and new approaches. Possible topics for papers
might include:

*Lytle's less-studied works, including the short stories
*New approaches to *The Velvet Horn*
*Considering Lytle's work in contexts other than the South and the
*Lytle's influences and those he influenced
*Theoretical approaches to Lytle's fiction

The list is not exhaustive; all good work that breaks new ground is
