Hello again everyone! A month of end of term, plus summer teaching, plus Congress (with a terrific joint CAAS/ACCUTE panel!!) has distracted me from the blog. But, with no further ado, here are some CFPs! Pay special attention to the top one, a joint CAAS/Northeast MLA panel!
American Literary Tourism
Joint CAAS/NeMLA Panel, Northeast MLA Convention, April 7-11 , 2011, New Brunswick, NJ
From visits to the grave of the fictional eighteenth-century Charlotte Temple, to the restoration of Salem’s House of the Seven Gables at the turn of the century, to competing twentieth-century Faulkner Festivals, literary tourism is ingrained in American culture. We invite submissions from scholars interested in any aspect of American literary tourism, from the creation and maintenance of sites and events, to interpretations and experiences of them, and beyond. Send 300-500 word proposals and brief bio/CV to Jennifer Harris firstname.lastname@example.org.
