The AAALS calls for papers for its 27th Annual conference to be held in conjunction with ANSZANA in Forth Worth, TX from February 17 to 19, 2011. As always, the conference will be collegial and open-minded, welcoming papers from many different approaches and contexts. Since this will be our first official conference as the American Association for Australasian Literary Studies, we particularly invite material on New Zealand literature and film and its international connections. We also are especially interested in papers on Indigenous Australian literature and Maori literature in New Zealand. Welcome as well will be papers dealing with the two giants of Australian literature we have recently lost, Peter Porter and Randolph Stow, and writers whose centennials are in or near 2011 such as Elizabeth Riddell, Allen Curnow, Denis Glover, William Hart-Smith, and Patrick White. As always, submissions on any other aspect of Australian, New Zealand, or South Pacific literature, culture, or film is welcomed: local, regional, national, international, transnational, as well as comparative après on Australian literature with respect to other traditions. Please send 200 word abstracts to Nicholas Birns at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2010.
