Monday, November 17, 2008 - 5:18pm
Thomas Morgan

At the time of his death, Paul Laurence Dunbar was the most famous poet in
America. A century later, his literary reputation rests upon many of the
same terms used to initially locate Dunbar as a writer of dialect poetry,
even as many of these terms have themselves been dismissed or subsequently

his work remains his central contemporary legacy. This panel seeks to
challenge and revise this picture of Dunbar's legacy by reexamining
Dunbar's careful negotiation of nineteenth century literary mores. In
doing so, this panel is interested in modernizing Dunbar's literary
