I am looking for 1-2 more panelists to fill out a panel proposal for the 2015 American Studies Association conference (http://www.theasa.net/submit_a_proposal).

This panel is sponsored by the Southern California Society for the Study of American Women Writers, an author-society member of the American Literature Association.
