CALL FOR PAPERS
"Elizabeth Stoddard and Nineteenth-Century Literary Culture"
American Literature Association Conference

any aspects of her connection to that culture—biographical, literary,
aesthetic, thematic—are welcome. We especially seek papers that do not
exclusively engage with Stoddard's work alone, but consider her within a
broader context.
