The William Dean Howells Society invites paper proposals that examine
instances of Howells's life and work that diverge from what we would
normally expect of him, literary or otherwise. Possible topics may
include politics, ghost stories and occultism, utopian fiction, poetry,
literary criticism, sentimentalism, and sexuality, among others.
Please send by January 8, 2006 paper proposals no longer than 500 words
and copy of cv to Claudia Stokes at Claudia.stokes_at_trinity.edu or by
post to Claudia Stokes, Trinity University, Dept of English, 1 Trinity
Place, San Antonio, TX 78212.
