Conversazioni in Italia:
Emerson, Hawthorne, and Poe
Florence, Italy, June 8-10, 2012
Sponsored by the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society, the Nathaniel Hawthorne Society, and the Poe Studies Association
The conference organizers are calling for proposals for papers and panels that discuss Emerson, Hawthorne, or Poe in terms of transatlantic literary culture in their era (for instance, questions of transatlantic travel, influence, slavery, the Civil
War, marketing, reception, and copyright). We also welcome proposals for papers and panels that relate the three authors to each other or to their European contemporaries, as well as proposals focusing on any topic related to Emerson, Hawthorne, or Poe in these contexts.
