CALL FOR PAPERS: LYDIA MARIA CHILD SOCIETY AT ALA 2016
The Lydia Maria Child Society (LMCS) is looking for submissions for a panel to be held at the annual American Literature Association conference in San Francisco, CA, 26 – 29 May 2016 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco (http://alaconf.org/annual-conference/  [1 ]).
We value sharing ideas about Lydia Maria Child and her work, so we’re sending an open-topic call with an extended deadline of 27 January 2016. What aspects of Child’s life and writing deserve to be introduced, explored, assessed, re-evaluated, or shared? How might social justice or social responsibility fit into your ideas, however broadly or narrowly they’re construed? What makes you passionate about Child’s work? What makes Child passionate about her work? Share your ideas with us! We want to hear from you!
Please send 250-word abstracts and a brief CV to Sandy Burr at firstname.lastname@example.org by 27 JANUARY 2016
