Every year, the Western Literature Association hosts a conference on topics of the West. The association president of the current year hosts the conference and picks the conference site. All questions regarding conferences should be addressed to the presidents in charge.
The WLA Conference 2012 will be hosted by Professor Sara Spurgeon, Texas Tech University.
PAST PRESIDENTS and CONFERENCE SITES
Find a list of all WLA presidents (most with pictures) and when and where they hosted the annual WLA Conference.
PAST PRESIDENTS’ ADDRESSES
At every conference, the past president gives the Past President’s Address. Below you’ll find links to some of them:
1989—Glen Love, “Revaluing Nature: Toward an Ecological Criticism”
PAST CONFERENCE PROGRAMS
Below you’ll find conference programs from previous years. These are not the absolutely final copies, but they’re as close to final as they were posted at the time. So if you are looking for somebody who was on your panel or a particular paper you heard, this might be helpful. If you have any questions, though, try contacting the person who gave the paper, chaired the panel, etc. The webmaster in this case is not likely to be able to help. In other words, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK and keep any problems with these programs to yourself.
