The William Dean Howells Society is sponsoring two panels at the upcoming American Literature Association conference, which takes place over Memorial Day weekend in Boston. For one of the panels, we are interested in papers that touch upon any topic in Howells's work. We are especially keen to hear about new directions in Howells scholarship and/or texts that often get overlooked.
