Rebecca Harding Davis Sessions at ALA (May 27-10, San Francisco)
The Society for the Study of Rebecca Harding Davis and Her World will host two sessions at the annual conference of the American Literature Association. The conference will be held May 27-30, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency (Embarcadero Center) in San Francisco, California. For further information about the conference, please consult the ALA website at www.americanliterature.org.
Session One: Approaches to Teaching Davis's "Life in the Iron Mills." We envision this session as a roundtable discussion among participants who teach at all levels and who offer a variety of approaches to this complex text. To encourage discussion, presentations will be limited to 8-10 minutes.
Session Two: "Open" Topic. We are interested in proposals that touch on any topic in Davis's work and especially welcome proposals that draw attention to her lesser-known texts. Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes.
Deadline: December 15, 2009
Please send a one-page abstract and a brief C.V. to Mischa Renfroe.
