The William Dean Howells Society is sponsoring the following
two panels at the 2010 American Literature Association annual conference, which
will be held this year in San Francisco on May 27-30:

  1. Howells and Capitalism:  As the American economy
    struggles to regain its footing, we are interested in papers on any aspect
    of Howells’s work that touches on his ideas and attitudes toward
    capitalism, which became more contentions in his later years.
  1. Open Topic: We are interested in papers that touch upon any topic in Howells’s work. We are
    especially keen to hear about new directions in Howells scholarship and/or
    texts that often get overlooked.

 

For either panel, please send a 500-word abstract and a
brief c.v. (separate MS Word attachments) by January 10th, 2010 to
Dr. Lance Rubin at lance.rubin@arapahoe.edu
or by mail to Lance Rubin, Department of Humanities, Arapahoe Community
College, 5900 S. Santa Fe Drive, Littleton, CO 80160
