Call for Papers
The Edith Wharton Society, an allied organization of the MLA, will sponsor
two panels at the 2006 MLA Convention in Philadelphia.
1. Nation, Race, and Citizenship in Edith Wharton's Works. Issues addressed
might include but are not limited to cosmopolitanism; biological, political,
and anthropological constructions of citizenship, race, and nation; exile
and conceptions of "home"; national and transnational identities; and
related topics. Proposals on Wharton's fiction, travel literature,
autobiographical writings, poetry, and work during World War I are welcome.
