[UPDATE] William Dean Howells Panels at the American Literature Association Conference, San Francisco, CA, May 24-27, 2012

Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 7:45pm
The WIlliam Dean Howells Society

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?
