The Western Literature Association will sponsor two sessions at this year’s American Literature Association meeting (http://americanliteratureassociation.org/…/annual-conferen…/), scheduled to meet May 26-29 in San Francisco, CA. This is a general call for papers or panels on topics related to western American literature. Of particular interest are papers on periodical culture and/of/in the West, but all topics will be considered. If you’re interested in presenting on a WLA-sponsored panel, please submit to Nic Witschi <nwitschi@westernlit.org> a paper proposal (title and a brief abstract) no later than Sunday 24 January. If you’re interested in proposing a complete session, please let Nic know ASAP.
