Call for Papers: American Literature, Literary Theory, and Constitutional
Law
38th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 1 - 4, 2007
Baltimore, Maryland
How might we explain the recent proliferation of scholarly activity taking
place at the intersections of American literature, literary theory, and
