Nineteenth-Century Women Writers and the North American Frontier

2007 RMMLA Conference, October 4-6 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

This panel seeks papers which broaden and extend conceptions of the frontier
through the examination of nineteenth-century women writers. From Maria Amparo
Ruiz de Burton to Margaret Fuller, Caroline Kirkland to Mary Seacole, women
writers actively engaged in writing the North and Central American frontier,
shaping the myths and exposing the realities of nineteenth-century westward
expansion. While we welcome paper proposals on any topic, we are especially
interested in papers which examine the points of interconnectivity between
transnational, regionalist, and frontier narratives.

Please submit your abstract of 250 words to by March 1,
