proposed panel on Edward Everett Hale

We are soliciting paper proposals for a session on
Edward Everett Hale (1822-1909), the prolific author,
pastor, reformer, amateur historian, congressional
chaplain, and editor, co-founder of the Unitarian
Church of America, and associate of Emerson, Oliver
Wendell Holmes, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mark Twain, and
several U.S. Presidents. Hale's writings include "The
Man Without a Country" (one of the most widely read
and reprinted Civil War texts) and its sequel, Philip
Nolan's Friends, along with dozens of novels and short
stories that appeared in leading periodicals like The
Atlantic Monthly and North American Review.

Please send your proposal and CV by 1/15/07 to or Susan Kalter,
 We are particularly interested in proposals that link
Hale's work to critical issues like nationalism,
nineteenth-century Unitarianism, citizenship,
international law, U.S./Latin American relations,
Anglo-Spanish rivalries in the Louisiana Territory,
and border studies. This panel is being organized in
conjunction with a projected critical edition of
Hale's most influential writings.
