The Colloquium in American Literature and Culture



The Colloquium in American Literature and Culture (CALC) at New York University is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for our Fall 2012 events. CALC is a forum for the presentation and discussion of new Americanist scholarship by both junior and senior researchers. 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. Approaches have included single-author and comparative studies, media studies, as well as print and material culture studies. We invite the attendance of all faculty and graduate students, regardless of specialty, to CALC events. All sessions are open to the public.

To submit your work for consideration, please email an abstract of your project to by Friday, March 1. CALC also encourages, but does not require, submitters to include a CV with the abstract.
