Call For Papers

The South Atlantic Modern Language Association takes pride in its long-standing commitment to fostering scholarly discussions across literatures, languages, pedagogy, and the intermedial spaces of our diverse academic fields and backgrounds. Our members—scholars, educators, and students—advance the reading and understanding of numerous textual modes of representation and the ways in which linguistic and textual coding may be understood as a polyvalent tool leading to social change and interdisciplinary progress.

The theme of SAMLA 92—Scandal! Literature and Provocation: Breaking Rules, Making Texts—invites us to think through the optics of scandal, transgression, and rebellion, as these themes apply to literary, historical, political, and interdisciplinary inquiries, reading practices, and pedagogical innovation. What defines scandal? In what ways do texts (literary, theoretical, and linguistic) break with canonical codes and traditions to challenge societal norms and to offer alternate readings of experience? In what ways and to what ends have scandals served as the springboard for creation? How do scandals elevate the visibility of individuals and communities? To what degree does creation depend on getting out of one’s comfort zone—as an artist, as a reader, as a spectator, or as an educator or student?

Scholars interested in chairing a session or presenting at SAMLA 92 should visit our Calls for Papers page for further instructions and links to the appropriate forms.

Prospective session chairs should prepare their CFP language and submit a CFP form for SAMLA's approval. A CFP form should be submitted for each session, even if the session already has a full list of presenters. SAMLA will post all approved CFPs below to encourage scholars to submit abstracts to Session Chairs for approval and, ultimately, inclusion in the conference program. Chairs may also choose to widen their selection process by posting their CFPs on other databases.

Calls for Papers received by 1 March 2020 will be printed in the digital newsletter, SAMLA News, in addition to being posted on this page. CFPs submitted after 1 March will not be included in the newsletter but will be posted on this page. The final deadline to submit a CFP is 1 June 2020.
