>The 2005 Conference of the Association of Literary Scholars and Critics
>(ALSC) in Cambridge, Massachusetts will feature a series of seminars
>designed to increase participation of younger scholars in the conference.
>Modeled on what has worked successfully for such organizations as the
>Shakespeare Association of America and the Modernist Studies Association,
>these three seminars will each be led by a distinguished member of the ALSC.
>The conference will be held from Friday, November 4 through Sunday, November
>6, 2005, at the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The seminars will
>take place on Saturday, November 5, 2005.
>
>
>
>Each seminar will have fifteen (15) guaranteed places, and each person
>accepted to a seminar will receive an official letter of invitation to the
>conference and will be listed in the program for the conference.
>Participants in the seminar will write very brief position papers (2-4
>pages, double-spaced), which they will circulate among themselves and read
>prior to the conference. The listing of the titles of these papers in the
>conference program should help the participants in their efforts to obtain
>funding to the conference from their home colleges and universities.
>Graduate students and junior faculty are especially encouraged to apply for
>these seminars, but senior scholars are eligible as well. Modest travel
>stipends will be available to a limited number of participants with special
>consideration given to ALSC members in good standing. These stipends will be
>awarded based upon need. Two documents are required to demonstrate
>sufficient need: (1) official notice (printed on institutional letterhead)
>that the award applicant's home institution has denied his or her request
>for funding to attend the ALSC Conference, and (2) a brief personal
>statement of need (a single paragraph will do). All stipend applications are
>vetted by the ALSC Conference Committee.
>
>
>
>We hope that senior scholars will spread the word about these opportunities,
>and encourage their graduate students and junior colleagues to apply. The
>three seminars will run concurrently; those formally admitted to each
>seminar will participate in the actual discussion, but anyone at the
>conference will be welcome to attend one of the seminars as an auditor
>provided there is sufficient room. For details on the topics of the seminars
>and application procedures, please see below. All applications and abstracts
>for the seminars are due on March 31, 2005.
