CFP (Extended Deadline): Constance Fenimore Woolson at ALA (1.20.16)

The Woolson Society is extending the deadline to Jan. 20 for its ALA panel/roundtable (May 26-29, San Francisco) on Teaching Recovered Women Writers. We hope to expand the discussion to more voices and particularly to the topic of using online archives to bring recovered women writers’ texts into the classroom. The original call is below.

As a follow-up to a productive roundtable on the recovery of women writers at last year’s ALA, the Constance Fenimore Woolson Society is putting together a panel for the San Francisco ALA on the subject of Teaching Recovered Women Writers. One the most urgent issues that emerged from last year’s discussion was the need to help our colleagues fit recovered writers into their courses. If they aren’t taught, then texts go out of print, writers disappear from anthologies, and the recovery process comes to a halt. Please send a brief email by January 20 to  introducing yourself and telling us about what you would like to discuss. We highly encourage unconventional presentations rather than standard conference papers.
