The AAALS calls for papers for its 28th Annual conference to be held in conjunction with ANSZANA in Toronto, ON from February 17 to 19, 2012. As always, the conference will be collegial and open-minded, welcoming papers from many different approaches and contexts. Connections involving any combination of Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the US will be welcomed. We also are especially interested in papers on Indigenous Australian literature and Maori literature. Welcome as well will be papers dealing with Patrick White, whose centennial is in 2012 and who is in the midst of an exciting reconsideration. 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 papers on Australian literature with respect to other traditions. Please send 200 word abstracts to Nicholas Birns at email@example.com by December 1, 2011.
