Call for Papers: JASAL issue on David Malouf

La république des lettres —

The noted Australian author David Malouf turns 80 in March 2014.
Australian Catholic University, in conjunction with the Association for
the Study of Australian Literature, held a symposium in David¹s honour on
31 May 2013. Selected papers from the symposium will form the core of a
2014 issue of the Journal of the Association for the Study of Australian
Literature (JASAL).

Associate Professor Michael Griffith and I are now calling for
supplementary papers to ensure good coverage of David¹s life, work in all
genres, his influence on contemporary writers and culture, and his place
in the international literary world. There will be place in the journal
for peer-reviewed papers of 4,500 ­ 6,000 words as well as tributes to /
reminiscences of David.

Potential contributors are invited to check out the book of abstracts on
the symposium website to see what areas are already being treated
(http://www.acu.edu.au/maloufsymposium ) and for more details on this call.

Ideally, 250 word abstracts should be forwarded to
MaloufSymposium@acu.edu.au using the subject header ŒMalouf JASAL¹ by 31
July. Final papers would be due around October as we are hoping the issue
will be brought out close to David¹s birthday.

If you are interested in offering a paper, please contact me at
Elaine.lindsay@acu.edu.au at your earliest opportunity.

If you know of anyone else who might also be a likely contributor (in
Australia or internationally), we¹d be obliged if you could forward this
email on to them.
