A panel or panels on multiculturalism and representations of race and ethnic
identity is being constructed for the Wilson College conference on Nancy Drew
and Girl Sleuths. The goal of the panel is to examine representations of race
and ethnic identity in girl sleuth literature, both past and present; since
most characters in girl sleuth stories are generally white, this panel is
concerned about how other races and ethnic identities are depicted and
represented in contrast to the whiteness that seems to inform the majority of
the characters in these texts.

To submit an abstract, send it to the address listed for the conference below.
