Short Story: Stories with Histories. Short stories are a literary genre especially given to migration, appearing in different formats and venues as they are expanded into novels, reprinted in different collections, or adapted for television or film. Papers for this panel should focus on short stories with a history of rewriting, reproduction, translation, and/or adaptation. Speculative or archival explorations that recover palimpsests from previous drafts, electronic files, or other, more elusive traces, are also welcome. Please send a 250 word abstract to Shiela Pardee, Southeast Missouri State University by April 15. E-mail submission preferred:
