Thoreau and Material Culture - gaurenteed session at MLA 2018

How do material objects enrich our understanding of Thoreau’s literary, natural-history, and politically-minded endeavors? How might tangible things deepen our sense of the author’s work, life, and world? What insights can we gain by recovering objects associated with his work, home, and place? The Thoreau Society invites abstracts of 250 words and a brief cv by 1 March 2017: Rochelle Johnson (rjohnson@collegeofidaho.edu).
