For this international, interdisciplinary conference, we seek papers that explore how different kinds of literacy, broadly defined, developed around the Atlantic Rim before the Columbian era; consider the roles of writing, communication, and sign systems in the era of discovery, colonization, and conquest; and/or examine how transatlantic encounters and collisions birthed new literacies and literatures, and transformed existing ones. We will consider aural and visual communication, along with varied metaphorical, cultural, and technological "literacies."

'The idea of influence in American literature', 31 March 2010

updated: 
Wednesday, December 2, 2009 - 11:37am
English Faculty, University of Oxford, UK

This one-day conference aims to ask whether American literature might fruitfully be viewed as a product of its influences, and if so, whether it can – or should – be considered separately from these influences. This question leads to two further areas of consideration: firstly, how the fluidity of American culture, informed by America's history of immigration and its complex demographic make-up, has helped construct American literature up to the present day; and secondly, how far American literature contains, excludes or even dams the constant in-flowing of cultural sources.

Humor and the Great Divide--American Literature Association Conference, May 2010; submission deadline 20 January 2010

updated: 
Wednesday, December 2, 2009 - 11:15am
American Humor Studies Association

Sometimes we seem alien to one another—separated by the gulfs of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, politics, class, and/or region, the gaps between us can seem too big to bridge. Faced with such divisions, we often turn to humor, either to help us across those divisions or else to reify their boundaries. This panel seeks proposals that explore and analyze the ways in which humor is used to define or re-define difference, to entrench the boundaries or to shift the ground so that often-surprising laughter carries us across the great divide.
