White Writing Red, Red Writing White
I invite abstracts for a proposed panel that explores literature by
white women encountering Native Americans and literature by Native
American women encountering whites. Ideally, the panel will cover a
range of periods and genres; I am particularly interested in material
written before 1960. Possible topics include inter-racial marriage,
"civilization" and the frontier, teachers and students, religious
conversion, national and tribal identity.
Please send one-page abstract and one-page c.v. to Lynn Domina at
dominalm_at_delhi.edu by Jan. 20.
