We are seeking a third presenter for a proposed panel at the American Literature Association in Boston (May 26-29, 2011). This panel aims to explore representations of poor whites and/or the intersections of whiteness and social class in twentieth-century works. One confirmed paper will examine intertextuality as a form of poor white class consciousness in Barbara Robinette Moss's _Change Me Into Zeus's Daughter_; the other will explore white femininity and class mobility in Zora Neale Hurston's _Seraph on the Suwanee_. Comparative approaches--across races, works, time periods--and papers examining individual works related to the panel theme are equally welcome.
