Conference Dates: November 18-20, 1999
JUBILATION, CELEBRATION, REVELATION: JOY, TRIUMPH, AND EPIPHANY IN AMERICA
We are seeking panel and presentation proposals from a variety of
disciplinary perspectives illuminating and interpreting any triumphant,
joyful, or epiphanic moment in American history, politics, religion, art,
literature, music, theatre, cinema, athletics, etc. We invite
explorations of such issues as the role any of these moments has played in
defining American culture; the significance of one of these moments in
community, state, or national history; and the effect any of these moments
has had on an individual or particular group. We are also interested in
how these moments have been recorded and rendered by America's writers,
musicians, painters, sculptors, and filmmakers.
As usual, we are also interested in receiving presentation proposals on
other aspects of American Studies.
Interested individuals should submit a 250-word abstract by August 1, 1999.
Those wishing to propose a session should submit a title, a 250-word
proposal (including the names of participants), and a vita by July 15, 1999.
