Dear ALSCW members and friends,
We have had requests for more time to think about responses to the call for papers at the October conference at Yale University from October 22-25. In view of these, and given the unique pressures under which we’re all now working, we are postponing the deadline for proposed seminar papers to July 1.
Please know that we are moving forward with plans for October, and will continue to accept submissions, but there is serious uncertainty at this time about the likely duration of the mitigation and containment measures that universities, like all other responsible institutions, have been putting in place; and it seems possible that the pandemic will affect the planned dates for the 2020 conference. We will let you know as soon as we have any information about this.

We have a tremendous event in the making. The exceptional quality of the sessions, performances, and special events we are assembling will help us reach that goal.

How to enter:
The ALSC Conference Program Committee invites proposals for papers and presentations to be considered for the 2009 conference at the Westin Tabor Center Hotel in Denver, October 9-11. Descriptions of each panel and seminar topic appear below, along with e-mail addresses and other contact information for submissions. Please bear in mind that there will be many more submissions than can be accepted, and that the criteria may include not only the merit of the individual submission but the range and variety of a session’s contributions. The pleasure of the conveners is to see how much stimulating and valuable work is being done; the pain is to be able to accommodate only part of it in panel or seminar.
