I am again chairing a special session panel at the SCMLA on Mark Twain.  This year it is in beautiful San Antonio, Texas.  Deadline for submission of an abstract for this panel is February 25, 2018.  Please submit your abstract to [log in to unmask]

CALL FOR PAPERS - South Central Modern Language Association (SCMLA) 2018 Conference 

SAN ANTONIO, TX * OCTOBER 11 - 14, 2018
Theme: Crossroads of Cultures 

Mark Twain's career as a writer and speaker embodies the conference's theme of "Crossroads of Cultures."  As a travel writer and lecturer, he described the cultures that were different from the American and European cultures and influences.  He introduced the Easterners to the frontier of America; he introduced Americans to the world outside of their small communities; he also introduced the rest of the world to the American experiences, culture and language. Through his writing and lectures, Mark Twain translated the American cultural experience to the world, thus showing what it was to be an American to our multi-cultural world.  This panel encourages papers on the various aspects of his career as a writer, lecturer, and cultural critic.
