Panels are now forming for presentations regarding all aspects (historical, literary, cultural, etc.) of Captivity Narratives and studies. All topics and approaches to the genre are welcomed. Graduate students/future teachers are particularly welcome to participate (with monetary awards for the best graduate student papers) - or to simply register to attend the conference and its captivity narrative panels.
