The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott (1893-1963) for the Society for the Study of American Women Writers 2018 Triennial Conference in Denver, Colorado on November 7-11, 2018.
Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, memoir, poetry, letters, young adult literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. Following from the conference theme of “Resistance and Recovery across the Americas,” we are especially interested in papers that explore those themes in Scott’s work and/ or that of her contemporaries. Conference themes include:
•Writing the fight: social justice, resistance, and protest in poetry and prose
