Panels are now forming for presentations regarding all aspects (historical, literary, cultural, etc.) of Captivity Narratives. All topics and approaches to the genre are welcomed. Graduate students/future teachers are particularly welcome to participate (with monetary awards for the best graduate student papers) - or to simply register to attend the conference and its captivity narrative panels.
If your work does not focus on captivity narratives in particular but fits within the broad range of areas designated for the upcoming conference on American & popular culture, I still encourage you to participate. Please see the conference’s full list of subject areas (each with its own CFP) at http://southwestpca.org/conference/call-for-papers/
Please pass along this call to friends and colleagues.
Submit your abstract by 1 November 2013 at http://conference2014.southwestpca.org/
You will need to create a user account in order to submit your proposal
Feel free to contact the area chair with any questions.
