Businesswomen in Ethnic American Fiction

For a proposed special session at the MLA, we are looking for papers that
address the figure of the businesswoman or female entrepreneur in ethnic
American fiction. Recent historical scholarship has emphasized the ways that
African American and immigrant women have contributed to the development of
fashion, beauty, and other industries from the turn of the century onward.
This panel will examine how such women are depicted in ethnic American
literature.

Please send a brief abstract and c.v. to Lori Harrison-Kahan at
harris8_at_fas.harvard.edu by March 24, 2006.

CFP: U.S. Studies Online (05/01/06; Journal issue)

U.S. Studies Online is now considering international submissions.

Originally founded to enable postgraduate students at British universities
to have their work published in a refereed environment at a time when the
opportunity for postgraduates to publish in American Studies paper journals
in Britain was becoming increasingly limited, the journal has now decided to
open the submissions process to postgraduate students from outside Britain,
as well.
