The James Agee Society invites proposals for papers for a special session at
the American Literature Association conference in Boston (May 24-27, 2006).

We are especially interested in presentations that engage the recent
publications of Agee's manuscripts (including the University of Tennessee
Press' James Agee Rediscovered), as well as papers that address Agee's
poetry, film criticism, screenplays, and journalism. Papers on Agee's place
in the American canon and problems of gender and race in his work are also
welcome.

Please send a brief abstract of presentation by January 28 to

Intertexuality: Conversations Between the Sheets
English Graduate Student Conference
The University of Tulsa
March 30-31, 2007

Call for papers and panels:

"Conversations Between the Sheets" is concerned with the direct and/or indirect discourse between texts that takes place when authors (whoever an author may be—from a single writer or coauthors to a community of editors, publishers, booksellers, etc.) interact with each other—alluding, referencing, paraphrasing, quoting, borrowing, sharing, stealing, extending, challenging, or opposing each others' ideas. Whether it is in the form of support, abuse, or simply recognition of ideas between writers, texts converse with each other.
