If you have any conferences (near Atlanta) to add to this list do let me know. Also, I’d like to hear about upcoming Reading Series for my next list.
SAMLA (South Atlantic Modern Language Association) is hosting its annual conference at the Loews Atlanta Hotel November 5-7. The theme is “The Interplay of Text an Image.” I was sad to see I’d missed the Eudora Welty Society’s call for papers for their panel titled “Text and Image in Losing Battles”: “From signs to photographs to letters to oral history, Eudora Welty employs layers of visual and verbal texts in her 1970 novel Losing Battles. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the publication of this novel, this session seeks papers that examine the interplay between
text and image in, arguably, Welty’s most complex novel.”
TYCA-SE (Two Year College Association, Southeast) is hosting its annual conference at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Conference Center in downtown Decatur, March 3rd-5th, 2011.
The Georgia State University Graduate English Association is hosting its 11th annual New Voices conference October 7th-9th at GSU. This year’s title is New Voices 2010: Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, which centers on the theme of humor and comedy.
