The SSAWW Conference deadline has been extended to February 28 at 5 p.m. for the SSAWW Conference.
Fourth Conference of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers October 21-24, 2009
Sheraton Society Hill, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We invite submissions of proposals for panels, roundtables, workshops, or individual papers. We welcome sessions on U.S. women authors and themes from the seventeenth through the twenty-first century; sessions and papers that compare U.S. women writers to writers of other nations are also welcome. The deadline for proposals is February 28, 2009 at 5 p.m. .
All conference participants must be members of SSAWW. Each member’s name can appear in the program twice – once as a presenter and once in some other capacity (chair, commentator, roundtable participant, etc.).
Proposals for entire sessions should include: (1) a paragraph describing the session as a whole; (2) a one-page abstract of each paper; (3) a one-page cv for each participant. The conference prefers four presenters per session, excluding the chair, although submissions for panels of three presenters will be considered.
Proposals for individual papers should include a one-page abstract and a one-page c.v.
Affiliated societies and organizations have one panel automatically included in the conference program. Affiliates’ contact persons should send panel titles with a list of participants, panel format, and presentation titles (if applicable).
Proposals should specify if audio/visual equipment is needed. However, due to the high cost, we ask that presenters request equipment only if it is essential.
All submissions should be sent electronically by the February 28, 2009 at 5 p.m deadline to Carolyn Sorisio (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please send proposals as Microsoft Word attachments. If that is not possible, then paste the information into an email.
