[UPDATE] Civil War Literature Panel, American Literature Association (ALA 2011 May 26-29, Boston, MA)
Despite the Civil War's lasting impact on popular culture in the U.S., the literature of the Civil War period remains an understudied area of nineteenth-century American literary studies. This proposed panel welcomes papers on literature of and about the Civil War through the end of reconstruction. Papers on individual texts or larger trends are welcome, as are traditional and non-traditional definitions of "literature."
Please email a 250-word proposal and a 1-page c.v. to email@example.com by December 15, 2010.
