Call for papers, panels for ALA in Boston

screen-shot-2016-12-22-at-10-53-11-amThe ALA has issued its annual Call for Papers, to be presented at the 28th Annual Conference of the American Literature Association on May 25-28, 2017, in Boston.

As in previous years, the conference will be held at the Westin Copley Place, 10 Huntington Ave., and as in previous years member organizations are encouraged to sponsor two sessions.

This year The John Updike Society would like to sponsor two sessions:

  1. A moderated 4-5 person panel inspired by a recent article, “Did Updike’s Rabbit Angstrom Anticipate or Parallel the Rise of Trump Voters?”
  2. An open session with moderator and three papers presented on Updike—preferably compared to other authors.

If you are interested in participating, please contact James Plath,
