Hello Folks,

  All but six names have been taken in response to my previous call
for contributors to a new Dictionary of Literary Biography volume on
early American nature writers. I have revised this list and deleted a

of these writers still left, please let me know. The entry, by the way,
will require 2000-3000 words and will be due in six months. Here
are the few left for entries:

J.D. Canning
L.J.W. Pierson
M.H. Jenks
M.J. Cawein
T.B. Read
Alvin Robinson

CFP: Rage, Resistance, and Representation: Women in U. S. Race Riots

Atlanta, GA. Washington, DC. Wilmington, NC. Chicago, Philadelphia,
Ocoee, New York, Tulsa: cities – among many others – that have been home
to race riots in the United States over the nineteenth and twentieth
centuries. This collection of essays will investigate the various active
roles women, and particularly minority women, played in such riots,
