The William Dean Howells Society welcomes submissions to round out two panels at the 2012 American Literature Association in San Francisco, which is being held over Memorial Day weekend.
Panel 1: The Late Howells
We are looking for papers that focuses on Howells's late work. Though scholarship on his novels through A Hazard of New Fortunes is abundant, Howells remained prolific until his death in 1920. Why has his work after 1890 gotten relatively little attention? What works deserve another (or even a first) look? What of Howells' work as a playwright? Or his work in the short story genre? How does ignoring the late Howells' alter his position in American literary history, or perhaps even complicate American literary history?
artciencia.com, Revista de Arte, Ciência e Comunicação (ISSN 1646 3463) is an open-access, peer-reviewed independent e-journal whose main objective is to promote interdisciplinary studies in Art, Science and Communication Sciences.
We are especially interested in essays and artwork that address the convergence of studies in science, and technology with those in art, or reconsider the encounter of art with specific historical events (i.e. new discoveries in science, technological development, political and social change etc.).

This year's theme—Possessions, Repossessions, Dispossessions--seeks to focus scholarly attention on the way Pinter's work and the Pinteresque more generally engages with loss and reclamation and on sites of contested authority, space, history, and ownership. Topics may range widely, literal or spiritual possession, ownership or occupancy, eviction and absence, and financial credit or individual acknowledgment. Please send abstracts as electronic attachments to Craig N.
