Colloquium in American Literature and Culture

New York University


The Colloquium in American Literature and Culture (CALC) at New York University is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for our Fall 2010 events. CALC encourages paper proposals by graduate students and faculty that focus on any subject or period relevant to American literature and culture.

A typical CALC event features two presentations of 20-25 minutes, followed by audience questions and discussion. Past speakers have presented on such diverse topics as early twentieth-century suffrage cookbooks, antebellum children's literature, and early American structures of feeling. We invite the attendance of all faculty and graduate students, regardless of specialty, to CALC events. Please visit our website at:

To submit your work for consideration, please email an abstract of your project to John Easterbrook at by Friday, September 17th. CALC also encourages, but does not require, submitters to include a CV with the abstract.
