We invite papers on Passages on the Rivers of American Literature for
the 39th annual meeting of the CEA.

>From the Mississippi of Melville's confidence men and Mark Twain's Huck and
Jim to the Riverworld of Philip Jose Farmer, rivers and travel on rivers
have played an important role in American literature. The "Passages on the
Rivers of American Literature" panel at the 2008 College English
Association seeks papers dealing with any aspects of riparian life and
travel in American literature, whether fiction, poetry, or other genres.
Papers dealing with race and gender, ecocritical approaches, fantasy and
science fiction, or noncanonical texts from any period are particularly
welcome. The conference will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, March 27-29,

Proposals should be submitted via the online database at
http://english.ttu.edu/cea/conftool by November 1st, 2007.

When you submit your proposal, you may use a pull-down menu to indicate
your topic. Indicate at that pull-down menu that your submission should be
directed to me, Jason L. Corner, chair of the panel.

To preserve time for discussion, CEA limits presentations to 15 minutes.

All presenters must become members of the College English Association by
January 1, 2008. For membership information, contact Joe Pestino at
