Session: "The Importance of Country and City Settings in Charles Chesnutt's Works"
We are seeking panelist for a special session at the CLA Conference 2010, to be held in late March or April in New York, hosted by Brooklyn College/CUNY. Papers should focus on Chesnutt's use of setting in his short stories, tales, and/or novels. Scholars might think about the connection between setting and cultural memory, language and culture in relation to place and space, space and place (of black and/or white/male and/or female) in country and/or city settings, the "economy" of place, etc.
