Open Topic:

Proposals are invited for the standing panel on 19th-Century American Literature at the 2010 Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association (RMMLA) Convention, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, October 14-16, 2010. In keeping with the custom of this panel, the topic is open. Of particular interest are innovative papers that situate American literary production across or against conventional boundaries of nation, race, language, gender, region, or sexuality.

Please send a 300 word abstract, along with c.v., contact information, and a statement of audio/visual needs, as an e-mail attachment (.doc or .pdf preferred) to the panel chair: Jennifer M. Nader . Proposals are due on March 1, 2010; notifications will be made by March 15, 2010.

Please note that, while non-RMMLA papers may submit proposals, all presenters must be members of RMMLA by April 1, 2010.
