The James Fenimore Cooper Society invites proposals for papers to be read
at our two sessions at the 2008 Annual Conference of the American
Literature Association.

The Society will offer two sessions:

1. Cooper’s Indians, chaired by Professor Barbara A. Mann.

2. TBA, chaired by Professor Signe Wegener. These papers may deal with
any aspect of the life or works of James Fenimore Cooper.

Presenters need not be members of the James Fenimore Cooper Society,
though we of course hope they will choose to join. Papers presented
will, with the authors' permission, be published in the James Fenimore
Cooper Society Miscellaneous Papers series and also made available online
at the society's website ( Papers
may be mildly revised for publication.

Paper proposals should include the paper title, an abstract (approx. 300
words), and an indication whether or not the paper may be published in
the Miscellaneous Papers. Generally, proposals for papers intended for
the Miscellaneous Papers will receive preference.

Deadline for proposals to be submitted to the chair is December 31, 2007.
