Call for Papers

18th Annual Conference

American Literature Association

May 24-27, 2007

Boston, Massachusetts

The James Fenimore Cooper Society welcomes submissions for its panel at
the 18th Annual Conference of the American Literature Association, to be
held in Boston, May 24-27, 2007.

Papers may deal with any aspect of the life or works of James Fenimore
Cooper and should be 20 minutes (6-8 pages) in length. Brief discussion
will follow the presentations. Papers must be read in person by the
author, except in the case of last-minute emergencies. Presenters need
not be members of the James Fenimore Cooper Society, though we certainly
hope that they will choose to join. According to ALA guidelines,
presenters may give only one paper at the Conference.

Papers presented at the conference will, with their authors' permission,
be published in the James Fenimore Cooper Society Miscellaneous Papers
series and made available online at the Cooper Society website. Papers
may be mildly revised for publication.

Paper proposals should include the paper title, an abstract
(approximately 300 words in length), and an indication of whether or not
the paper may be published in the Miscellaneous Papers. Generally,
proposals for papers intended for the Miscellaneous Papers will receive
preference. Proposals should be submitted no later than December 31,
2006 to:

Matthew Wynn Sivils
Assistant Professor of English
Box 76
Westminster College
New Wilmington, PA 16172

E-mail submission is preferred (attachments welcome) but not necessary.
