The International Society for Travel Writing seeks papers for a panel session entitled “Immigration and Exile in Southern Travel Writing,” scheduled for the 2012 convention of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association. The convention will be held 9-11 November 2012, in the Research Triangle Park, in Durham, NC.
“Immigration and Exile in Southern Travel Writing” will reflect the SAMLA conference themes of travel, immigration, and exile, as those themes appear in travel writing about the Southern United States or the global South. Papers may draw from a variety of approaches. Preference will be given to papers that discuss non-fictional travel narratives, or that discuss fictional travel narratives in the context of theoretical or critical approaches to travel literature.
Please submit electronically (Microsoft Word or PDF) abstracts of 250-350 words to Russ Pottle, International Society for Travel Writing, at email@example.com. Abstracts should include submitter’s name, title, institutional affiliation, and contact information. Deadline for abstract submissions is 15 June 2011. Notification will be made by 22 June 2011. Information about the SAMLA conference is available at http://samla.gsu.edu/.
