Where in the World is Margaret Fuller?  

The Margaret Fuller Society invites your participation in the Thoreau Gathering (July 6-10, 2022, live in Concord, MA).  For this conference whose major theme is Thoreau and Globalism, we will consider his colleague Fuller as part of world cultures through her reading, writing, travel experience, and transnational influence.    

Paper topics might focus on a global aspect of her transcendentalist or feminist vision; her New York Tribune dispatches on European events; her first-hand impressions of the revolutions of 1848; her view of immigration, race, gender, or abolition in transnational terms; her dialogue with or impact upon a reader, writer, or political figure anywhere in the world; her presence in the archives; or her work in translation. Application to present-day issues is always welcome.   

This will be a peer-reviewed panel.  Please send one-page proposals and short C.V.’s by December 13 to Phyllis Cole (pbc2@psu.edu). Decisions will be made by early January. Inquiries are welcome at any point.  For more information on the Thoreau Gathering, see  https://www.thoreausociety.org/event/annual-gathering-2021
