The American Literature Area of PCA/ACA invites submissions for our 2019 National Conference, to be held in Washington, D.C. at the Marriott Wardman Park.

Presentations in the area generally cover an array of topics, representative of the diversity in American literature and literary studies. Papers may concern a work(s) in any genre(s) of American literature from the colonial era to the present. We welcome a range of critical approaches: Presentations may consider literary representations, explore historical implications, offer theoretical readings, or examine thematic parallels. Treatments of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality are encouraged, as are proposals that explore intersections of American literature and popular culture—including but not limited to film, music, television, theater, visual arts, and fashion.
