Businesswomen in Ethnic American Fiction

For a proposed special session at the MLA, we are looking for papers that
address the figure of the businesswoman or female entrepreneur in ethnic
American fiction. Recent historical scholarship has emphasized the ways that
African American and immigrant women have contributed to the development of
fashion, beauty, and other industries from the turn of the century onward.
This panel will examine how such women are depicted in ethnic American
literature.

Please send a brief abstract and c.v. to Lori Harrison-Kahan at
