CFP SSAWW 2015 Proposed Panel: CFP: Indigenous Influence and Perspective in Mourning Dove’s Cogewea, the Half-Blood: A Depiction of the Great Montana Range (Deadline 12.15.14)

CFP: Indigenous Influence and Perspective in Mourning Dove’s Cogewea, the Half-Blood: A Depiction of the Great Montana Range (Deadline 12.15.14)

Mourning Dove’s novel Cogewea has been recognized for its foregrounding of a cast of liminal characters who straddle Native and non-Native cultures and spaces. Scholars have also drawn attention to the novel’s hybridized form with its celebration of indigenous oral traditions and its engagement and subversion of the familiar tropes of the western romance and sentimental novel. This panel would like to further explore indigenous influences and perspectives within the novel or Mourning Dove’s other writings, and welcomes a wide range of approaches to her work.

Email 250 word abstracts and a brief bio or CV to Amber LaPiana at aa.lapiana@gmail.com by December 15, 2014.
