I am soliciting paper proposals for a proposed panel at the American Literature Association in San Francisco May 27-30, 2010. In this panel I hope to examine abolitionist literature other than the "canonical" slave narrative texts. Papers may approach individual texts or be theoretical in nature, exploring the category of "political" literature in this context.

Please submit 500-word abstract along with a brief CV by January 22, 2010 to msledge@mmm.edu.
