Announcing the 2015 triennial conference of the society for the study of american women writers.

The conference organizers welcome proposals on any topic related to the study of American women writers, broadly conceived. With the theme of "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," the conference aims to celebrate the multiplicity of American women's writing across a long-standing literary tradition that continues to be dynamic in contemporary times. The conference theme will facilitate a process of encounters, engagements, and conversations within, between, among, and across the rich polyphony that constitutes the creative acts of American women. Thus, through a focus on liminality and hybridity, the 2015 SSAWW conference hopes to present the varied ways that women, as critics, dramatists, educators, essayists, journalists, oral storytellers, poets, novelists, short-story writers, and practitioners of both older and emerging forms, invent and reinvent the American literary and cultural landscape.
