**Call for Papers
Proposed Special Session for South Atlantic Modern Language Association
Convention (Nov. 4-6, 2005, Atlanta, GA)

"Southward the Course of Empire"

This panel will address various connections among the U.S. South, its
literary and cultural productions, and U.S. imperialism. Papers may be
from any historical period and address a range of subjects; for example:

- how images of the South as colonized by the North are complicated by
the South's own imperial histories, antebellum as well as postbellum.
- how discourses surrounding race, gender, or nationality link southern
texts with broader U.S. imperial movements.
- how southern writers have addressed such subjects as frontier
expansion,

Manifest Destiny, and the civilizing mission.
- how southern texts have circulated in imperial contexts.

Please send 300-word abstracts and a brief vita by March 1, 2005 to
jerwells@siu.edu.
