It has been twenty years since the recovery and republication of Rowson's /Charlotte Temple/. We solicit papers for the Society for the Study of American Women Writers Conference that address new areas of scholarship on this now canonical author. We are particularly interested in papers which situate Rowson in new contexts or address her lesser known works.
