William Dean Howells at the ALA in San Francisco (May 27-30, 2010)

full name / name of organization: 
The William Dean Howells Society

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.

2.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 2nd, 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
