Engaging Bayard Taylor: This once-forgotten poet, novelist, and travel writer is now frequently referenced in studies of transnationalism, sexuality, class, and imperialism in 19th c. American literature. What interpretive issues result from his revival as a touchstone of popular literary culture? Papers on individual works or on Taylor in relation to other literary figures welcome. Abstracts and CV via PAMLA's online proposal system by 3/31/2013: http://www.pamla.org
