I invite papers on any aspect of Reconstruction-era American literature to
constitute a panel proposal for the American Studies Association
conference in Albuquerque, NM, October 16-19. I am particularly interested
in historical approaches that address the role of imaginative literature
or other print discourses in national reconciliation and readings of works
by African Americans, women, and/or former abolitionists, but all
submissions are welcome.

Please send a 1-2 page abstract and a brief CV no later than January 11 to
jackson_at_brandeis.edu.
