The New England Quarterly seeks submissions for a special issue featuring original essays by emerging scholars in the field. Successful submissions will engage with and expand the Quarterly's orientation to the history of New England's life and letters as an organic part of the United States and the world.  The editors are especially interested in essays that offer contemporary perspectives on traditional understandings, stimulate new fields of inquiry, and suggest new ways in which local and regional studies can provide a unique lens for understanding global themes.  We welcome submissions by advanced graduate students as well as scholars who are no more than three years beyond receipt of the doctorate.

Teaching Travel Writing

 

The Society for the Study of American Travel Writing seeks abstracts for a session on “Teaching Travel Writing” for the American Literature Association annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts, May 25-28, 2017.

Proposals might consider the following questions:
