Brandeis Novel Symposium 2020: Willa Cather, Settler colonialism, indigeneity
CFP: Brandeis Novel Symposium
Friday April 24, 2020
Brandeis University, Waltham, MA
Deadline for submissions: November 1, 2019
The fourth annual Brandeis Novel Symposium examines the genre’s relation to issues of settler colonialism, land, and indigeneity. The focal text is Willa Cather’s The Professor’s House (1925). As in previous years, we invite papers that explore these larger questions from diverse theoretical, historical and formal angles, taking Cather’s novel either as focus or simply as a point of departure.
Please send abstracts of 150-250 words by November 1 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Decisions by November 20.
