CFP: SSAWW 2015 Proposed Panel: The Society for American Travel Writing (Deadline: 15 December 2014)

The Society for American Travel Writing (Deadline: 15 December 2014)

The Society for American Travel Writing invites submissions for its upcoming panel at the triennial meeting of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers, November 4-8, 2015 in Philadelphia.

In keeping with the conference theme of “Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives,” we welcome papers that explore the ways in which crossing ideological, political, economic, intellectual, and creative boundaries are elaborated in women’s travel experiences and travel texts. Because the word “limen” suggests crossing thresholds, an inherent aspect of geographic movement, our panel seeks to investigate how the various mobilities of geography, politics, and identity meet and intersect in women’s travel writing.

Please email a brief CV and 300 word abstract to Melanie Scriptunas (mscript@udel.edu) and Susan Roberson (susan.roberson@tamuk.edu) by 15 December 2014 using “SATW at SSAWW” as the subject line.
