Printing Latin America: The Literary and Cultural Review of the 20th Century.
Paper proposals solicited for The Melville Society ALA panel "Melville and Literary Influence: Reframing Tradition" at the next American Literature Association meeting (May 25-28, Boston). Emboldened by the innovative new work being done on the question of literary influence and intertextuality, this panel seeks papers that explore both Herman Melville's engagements with other writers and texts and the dynamics of influence and intertextual practice. While Melville's engagements with English literary tradition will no doubt be a central topic, the panel is open to the fullest range of possible topics related to these questions.

The New England Quarterly seeks submissions for a special issue featuring original essays by emerging scholars in the field. Successful submissions will engage with and expand the Quarterly's orientation to the history of New England's life and letters as an organic part of the United States and the world. The editors are especially interested in essays that offer contemporary perspectives on traditional understandings, stimulate new fields of inquiry, and suggest new ways in which local and regional studies can provide a unique lens for understanding global themes. We welcome submissions by advanced graduate students as well as scholars who are no more than three years beyond receipt of the doctorate.
The Journal of American Studies: Eurasian Perspectives (JASEP) is an international peer-reviewed journal, published semi-annually. The Institute of Language and Communication Studies and Macro World Publishing jointly edit the journal. It invites research on the topics of American literature, art and humanities including U.S. culture and literature, socio-linguistics, migration to the U.S., feminism, socio-cultural approaches to American life, social problems and social changes, human rights, ethnic and racial studies, terrorism and public service. Its main focus, however, is on the various European and Asian perspectives on these issues.
