Founded in 1997, the American Religion and Literature Society (ARLS) is

the vitality of religion and literature and collegial friendships
within the area of noted interest.

The Lesser-Known Chopin: What We've Missed/What We're Missing
 
Though Kate Chopin wrote two novels, dozens of poems, and nearly a hundred
short stories, her critical reputation continues to rest largely on The
Awakening and a handful of very famous stories. But there's more. This
panel will provide a glimpse into some of the remarkable work that has
been too often overlooked by scholars and students alike. For this ALA
panel, which is sponsored by The Kate Chopin Society, papers and
presentations are solicited that explore Chopin's other novel (At Fault),
her lesser-known short stories, or her poetry, as well as her essays,
diaries, and account books. Proposals of 100-150 words should be sent to

We seek papers for a panel at the 2006 Society for the Study of American
Women Writers conference (in Philadelphia) that explore the relationship
between science and sentiment in women's writing. Taking as a starting
point scholarship on sentiment by critics such as Shirley Samuels, Glenn
Hendler, Julie Ellison, Marianne Noble, Dana Nelson, and Lauren Berlant, we
are interested in how women writers' use of and relationship to the
sentimental aesthetic developed as America's scientific world view evolved,
from the age of so-called sentimental "feminization" (in the 18th and 19th
centuries) into the present moment. The language of science-as seen in
