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.

recognition in both American and European literary studies that
cultures on both sides of the Atlantic between roughly 1580 and 1800
were profoundly shaped by the effects of contact and colonization. To

international terms in this period? How do Europeans as well as early
Americans begin to understand themselves as world citizens? How can we
understand local political, economic, or literary events in
