Call for Papers: The Wide Reach of Appalachia

The Appalachian Studies Association has issued a call for papers for its 35th annual conference to be held March 23rd-25th, 2012 at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

The ASA especially encourage proposals on any aspect of northern Appalachia—but also, considering “The Wide Reach of Appalachia,” proposals about the Appalachian diaspora and about Appalachian influences and connections in other parts of the country. At the same time, they want to celebrate the “Wide Reach” of Appalachian studies in general and, in non-exclusive fashion, will welcome a wide diversity of topics ranging throughout our whole interdisciplinary field of study.

The deadline for proposals is  October 15, 2011.  Please find submission details on the conference website.
