to be held at
Northwestern University
Evanston, Illinois, U.S.A.
June 28 & 29, 2013

In 2013, the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation, TWWA welcomes papers discussing Walt Whitman's writings in relation to any aspect of the U.S. Civil War in national or international memory. In addition
to papers that interpret Whitman's work in terms of the War between the Northern and Southern States, we also welcome papers that approach Whitman either hemispherically or globally, focusing on the legacies, significance, and lasting consequences of Whitman's writings as they have circulated, been translated, revised, and reworked by different language constituencies, nationalities, and literary schools in Central and South America and in the Northern and Southern hemispheres of the
globe more generally.

One-page abstracts should be sent electronically, no later than April 1, 2013, to all four Symposium Organizers: Professor Ed Folsom , Professor
Ken Price , Professor Jay Grossman , and
Professor Vanessa Steinroetter .
