The Society for the Study of American Women Writers will host two panels at the American Literature Association Conference (May 23-26, Boston, MA). The panel themes reflect our increasingly international membership and scholarly interest in the relationships between the global and the local.

Panel 1: Early and Nineteenth- Century American Women Writers and Globalization
The geography of the home frequently defines American women writers. This panel seeks papers addressing early and nineteenth- century American women writers and global perspectives. Papers may focus on the the ways the global impacts domestic and other regional environments in texts written by American women writers from this period. Papers may also examine American women writers abroad during this period.

Panel 2: Twentieth- and Twenty-first- Century American Women Writers and Globalization
Domesticity remains a defining theme for contemporary American women writers. This panel seeks papers addressing twentieth- and twenty-first- century American women writers and global perspectives. The papers may focus on the the ways the global impacts domestic and other regional environments in texts written by American women writers from this period. Papers may also look at American women writers abroad during this period.

Please submit to Kristin Jacobson (kristinjjacobson@gmail.com) by Jan. 4, 2013, a 250-500 word abstract (please note in the subject line of your email which panel your proposal best fits) and a brief CV (no more than 2-pages) that includes rank/status (e.g. ABD or Associate Professor, etc.), institutional affiliation (independent scholars are welcome to submit proposals), publications, and conference presentations. Confirmation of receipt of your proposal will be sent to you within two business days.

All proposals should be both pasted into the text of the email and included as attachments (preferably as a single PDF document). While you do not need to be a SSAWW member to apply for a panel, presenters must be or become SSAWW members to participate in a SSAWW sponsored panel.
