Appreciating (?) Nineteenth-Century American Poetry (01/25/06; ALA)

A number of recent works have aimed to recover nineteenth-century American
women's poetry; a few studies have also given renewed attention to male
poets of the period. Although these works have been informed by various
approaches (feminist, nationalist, print culture, and literary historical),
most grapple initially with a single question: how should one assign
literary value to this material? Each scholar ultimately either answers
this question for him- or herself, or chooses to set it aside.

Working Title--Adolescent Medievalism: The Middle Ages Packaged for Children and Young Adults

As stated in our initial CFP, we are interested in abstracts on how the Middle Ages has been and is presented to young people. This focus includes not only literature written specifically for older children and adolescents but also historical fiction, textbooks, and other texts that address the Middle Ages or use medieval motifs. We have many fine abstracts but have noticed specific gaps that need filling.
