SAMLA 87 – In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts
Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center
Durham, North Carolina 
November 13
–15, 2015

From Sappho with her barbitos, to the gloriously illuminated Book of Kells, to the Troubadours of the High Middle Ages, on up through William Blake and his alchemical etchings, Lewis Carroll's controversial photographic portraits of children, Carl Sandburg's folk music, James Baldwin and Ray Charles' unlikely collaboration at Carnegie Hall on July 1, 1973, and all the way up to William S. Burrough's shotgun splatter painting, writers have never been content to make art solely out of words. The humanities in general have always been markedly multidisciplinary. The academy, too, has generally sought to accommodate, foster, and inspire multidisciplinary creativity and interdisciplinary collaboration by incorporating studio programs, MFA degrees, and hybrid cross-disciplinary majors of all sorts. Digital technology and the Internet, in particular, seem to provide a concrete realization of Hermann Hesse's "the glass bead game"– art as quintessential multidisciplinary game playing. For SAMLA 87, presenters are invited to consider the myriad connections between literature and the other arts – painting, sculpture, photography, book making, music, dance, film, architecture, and the like.

All participants will be required to have a conference year (2015–16) SAMLA membership and to register for the conference. Chairs must complete membership by June 19. In order to be listed in the program, panelists' membership must be paid by August 31.
