We seek submissions for a panel highlighting new scholarly approaches to the study of New England, broadly construed, sponsored by The New England Quarterly, the foremost scholarly journal devoted to the study of the region’s cultural, literary, political, and social history. Papers might explore a figure or subject that has been neglected or utilize emerging critical approaches and conceptual frameworks. A member of the journal’s editorial staff will be available to work with all interested authors in the further development of these contributions into submissions to the journal. We heartily encourage submissions from women and scholars of color.  The American Literature Association’s 30th annual conference will meet at the Westin Copley Place in Boston on May 23-26, 2019 (Thursday through Sunday of Memorial Day weekend).   Please submit an abstract of around 250 words to holly.jackson@umb.eduby January 12, 2019.
