CALL FOR PAPERS -- Northeast Modern Language Association

Philadelphia, PA -- March 2-5, 2006


For this panel, I invite papers considering any aspect of Truman Capote's
work or persona. Fresh analyses of his stories, novels, essyas, letters or
screenplays are welcome. What sorts of claims might we make to label Capote a
"major" American writer? Whta did he contribute to the American canon? What were
his particular literary gifts? Papers dissecting Capote's public
appearances, his marketing of self or work, his various (and incessant) portrayals in the
media will also be welcome.

Please send 250-word abstracts by SEPTEMBER 15, 2005 to OR
