This approved session will explore the largely forgotten or ignored dime-novel--the American pulp novels of the 19th and early 20th centuries, including Westerns, detective stories, school stories, romance tales, or early science fiction. All aspects of the phenomenon of the dime-novel are fair game; papers may explore the dime novel through a new-Historical, Cultural Studies, Queer Theory, Marxist, post-Colonial, or other analytic lens.

The Online CFP List and Paper Proposal Form for the October 19-21 PAMLA Conference, to be held at Seattle University in Seattle, WA, is now open. The deadline for proposing a paper to this or any of the more than 100 approved sessions is April 22, 2012. For more information, please visit the PAMLA Conference website: http://www.pamla.org/2012
