Initial interest has been expressed for an essay collection to commemorate the bicentennial of Harriet Beecher Stowe's birth in 2011. Essays that provide critical readings of her work; that supply neglected biographical considerations, or that examine past criticism or suggest potential scholarly treatment are needed. Essays should also comment on her current popular or academic status in an attempt to chart future critical terrain while casting a long backward glance. Work that focuses on her pre- or post-Uncle Tom's Cabin career is especially encouraged. Please send a 1-2 pp. proposal that delineates topic, argument, and justification for inclusion in this volume before May 1.
