Seeking papers to fill out a panel proposal on Richard Brautigan's work for MLA 2012.

This panel seeks to explore any aspect of Richard Brautigan's work--poetry or prose. His work has been largely ignored by the academic community so I seek people with an interest in Brautigan who wish to recover his work. Your readings could take any number of angles, but personally I am most interested in ecocritical, historical, and gender studies readings.

DEADLINE FOR 500 word abstract and brief bio: March 1, 2011.
