In keeping with this year's SAMLA Conference focus, "Cultures, Contexts, Images, and Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds," scholars are invited to submit proposals for twenty-minute slots in a session on colonial, federal, or nineteenth-century literature of the United States. Possible topics may include but are not limited to: the intersections of print and visual culture in pre-1900 American literature, how access to literary networks influenced publication, the power of historical or cultural contextualization to shape textual meaning, or how digital culture has altered pre-1900 American literary studies. By June 8th, 2013, please e-mail a 250 word abstract and CV to Erin Wedehase, University of North Carolina Greensboro,
