As already announced, we are back with further news on the next conference that we will be holding in 2014. Again, you are all invited and you may want to know that this blog will be the gathering place where you can chat, question or keep updated. That is why we are back here, writing in this sunny but cold Sunday morning. We have more details and we want to share them with you. 

We already have a title (The American Literary West: A Territory without Borders?), a fixed date (8-10 October 2014) and a call for papers that we are attaching down there, so that you can dowload it and take a close look to it. There you'll also find the link to this blog and to our website (please, be aware of the fact that the cfp is attached in pdf format, so if you want to follow any of the links that we added to the text, you need to press first control bottom in your keyboard and then use the link thoroughly). Besides, you'll also find out that there is one specific email address ( to handle the conference's regular mail. If you wish, you can take that other option, and use that email address for further inquiry, instead of using this same source of information as a channel for doubt resolution. 

Please, read carefully our cfp and start brewing those ideas in your heads. We are looking forward to getting all your proposals and having you here with us. You just need to click where it says III International Conference The American Literary West down there and you'll have access to the call for papers:

And, meanwhile, because this is, I already told you, a sunny but cold Sunday Morning, let's make it even sunnier and warmer with some music. Enjoy the singing of a couple guys that will be probably mentioned in October's conference. Their morning was on a Saturday but, at least, the street was called Sunday, so it makes sense. Have fun!

REWEST Research Group is planning to hold a new international conference next year. Tentative dates are the following days: 8,9 and 10 of October in 2014. The conference will be held at the University of the Basque Country - Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea in Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain).

In the following days, we will use this blog to publish our call for papers and confirm the days in which the conference will be held. All future details will be also available in this blog.

It is our aim that this new conference is an opportunity to share new lines of research on the literature of the American West and an invitation for networking. Hoping that you all can make it to the Basque Country, we promise the same dedication and hardworking that made the previous editions a big success. You are always welcome.

In any case, keep track of this website if you want to be updated. In short, we will be loading here the call for papers. However, you can expect that we will advertise the event in some other forums. Stay tune and start making plans!
