2009 ALA Panel Topics / Calls for papers

The Howells Society will sponsor two panels at the 2009 ALA conference.

1. Howells and His Contemporaries
The William Dean Howells Society invites paper proposals addressing the
topic of Howells and his contemporaries for the 2009 ALA Convention in
Boston (21-24 May, 2009). Paper topics are welcome on any aspect of
Howells’s career and his relation to contemporary writers, artists,
critics, public figures, and so forth. While the connections may be well-
known (Twain, James), essays on lesser-known connections are especially
welcome.

The William Dean Howells Society invites paper proposals addressing any
aspect of Howells and his work for the 2009 ALA Convention in Boston (21-
24 May, 2009).

For either panel, please send a 500-word abstract and a brief c.v.
