The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott (1893-1963) for presentation at the American Literature Association's 31st Annual Conference in San Diego, CA (May 21-24, 2020). Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, memoir, poetry, young adult literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We are especially interested in papers that investigate the process of canonicity, the literary networks to which Scott belonged, or the role of disability in her career, but all topics will be considered.

Literary studies is one of the richest and most interdisciplinary fields of study, encompassing a wide array of valid approaches, from the historical, to the theoretical, to the experimental. Broadly speaking, works of literary scholarship aim to change or enhance the way we read texts by investigating their complexity.
We are particularly interested in books on English Literature, although we are open to proposals which examine any type of world literature.
The scope of the present call is broad. Possible topics include (non-comprehensive list):
