CFP: Constance Fenimore Woolson Society; ALA, Boston 2009; 12/31/08

The Constance Fenimore Woolson Society invites papers for its panel at
the 2009 American Literature Association Conference in Boston. The topic
is open, but we are especially interested in essays discussing Woolson's
lesser known fiction and travel writing and those that discuss Woolson in
relation to the larger cultural concerns of her era. Comparisons with her
contemporaries are welcome. Please send brief abstracts by December 31,
2008 to Kris Comment at <kristin.comment_at_gmail.com>.
