For the Northeast Modern Language Association’s (NeMLA’s) 51th Annual Conference, 5-4 March 2020, in Boston, MA, Shaping and Sharing Identities: Spaces, Places, Languages, and Cultures, this session is seeking proposals addressing the topic, A Connecticut Abolitionist in King Arthur’s Court: Harriet Beecher Stowe’s British Reception. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s radical views on slavery in Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852) took the western world by storm. Nowhere was the response more impassioned than in Great Britain.
