Abstracts are invited for a conference sponsored by the Troy University English Department on storms, shipwrecks, and survival, broadly defined. Proposed papers may focus on the literature of any country and any literary period, but please keep in mind that the conference language will be English. Topics might include (but are not limited to) the following:
Please visit <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=litsea2018> to submit a 250-word abstract by 1 November 2017. You will need to create a FREE EasyChair account to submit your abstract (linked at the aforementioned URL). Questions about the conference may be addressed to email@example.com. The conference web site is available at <http://spectrum.troy.edu/conference>.
This conference is scheduled to take place aboard the M. S. Carnival Elation, which will be sailing from Jacksonville, Florida, USA, 12-17 May 2018, with stops in the Bahamas at the ports of Nassau and Half Moon Cay. When possible, presentation times will be arranged so as not to conflict with port visits.
Because of the logistics involved in securing the conference venue and lower prices, we will make decisions on submissions by 1 December 2017.
We hope to produce a conference-proceedings volume in 2019.
Ben P. Robertson, Troy University
