2006 ALSC Conference, San Francisco, California, October 13-15 2006


The Association of Literary Scholars and Critics (ALSC) invites proposals
for papers and presentations to be considered for its twelfth annual
conference to be held at the Hotel Sir Francis Drake in San Francisco,
October 13-15, 2006. The conference program includes six panels and three
seminars. A description of one of these nine session topics appears below,
along with an e-mail address and other contact information for submissions.
Please bear in mind that there will be many more submissions than can be
accepted, and that the criteria may include not only the merit of the
individual submission but the range and variety of a session's
contributions. The pleasure of the chairs is to see how much stimulating and
valuable work is being done, the pain to be able to accommodate only part of
it in panel or seminar.

Chair: Sarah Spence (University of Georgia)


This panel will consider the part of publication in professional practice
and academic advancement, and other questions of importance to writers and
scholar-critics. How do editorial strategies differ in a specialized journal
or publishing house from a more general-interest or commercial publishing
house? What is the role of editorial boards and editorial consultants? In
what ways and to what extent does online publishing, both formal and in
blogs and chat rooms, figure now, and how will it in the future, for better
and for worse? On these and other questions, please send abstracts to Maria
Fitzgerald, Creative Writing Program, Department of English, 207 Lind Hall,
207 Church Street S.E., Minneapolis, MN 55455-0134. (
