The importance of Mary Shelley as a woman writer during the Romantic period
has been firmly established over the last two decades. In confirming her
significance, scholars have moved "beyond _Frankenstein_" to examine her
numerous works in a variety of genres, including the novel, short story,
drama, poetry, and literary biography. This collection will seek to
continue this effort by including papers discussing Shelley's importance to
the Romantic period, hopefully discussing both her better known and her
lesser known works, and exploring the complex relationship between her
works and the writings of her contemporaries--as well as her relationships
with her father particularly. Papers examining her writings in modes other
than the novel and short story are particularly encouraged.

Please submit the following by MS Word attachment by May 15 to L. Adam
Mekler, adam.mekler_at_morgan.edu: 250-word abstract, 20-page paper(ca. 6000
words), and a current c.v. Inquiries are certainly welcome before
the deadline.
