Society for the Study of Southern Literature Sessions (Two Sessions)
29th Annual American Literature Association Conference
May 24-27, 2018, San Francisco, CA
Deadline: January 22, 2018

Two Open-topic Sessions

The Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites paper proposals for two panels hosted by the Society for the American Literature Association Conference to be held in San Francisco in 2018. Papers relating to any aspect of southern literature and literary history are welcome, as we are organizing two open-topic panels, the final shape of which will be determined by response. We seek presenters engaged in exploring southern literature as expression and representation of region regardless of specific topic or methodology. As such, work that is interdisciplinary, trans-historical, globally focused, revisionist, or non-paradigmatic is equally welcome as work based in more traditional scholarly approaches.

Send proposals—including paper title, 250-word abstract, and presenter affiliation—to Todd Hagstette ( by January 22, 2018.
