Call for Reviewers: SSAWW Panels at the American Literature Association


The Society for the Study of American Women Writers will be presenting two panels at the 2017 American Literature Association Conference in Boston, MA. The theme for our panels this year will be activism and resistance in American women’s writing from early America to the present day. In preparation for this always exciting conference—another great opportunity to promote and advance the study of American women writers—we are asking for volunteers to serve as reviewers for the proposals that we receive. The deadline for submission of proposals is January 15, 2017, so reviewers can expect to receive proposals for evaluation no later than January 17 with a turnaround no later than January 27 in order to allot sufficient time to form our panels, contact participants, and submit materials to the ALA conference organizers.


Please contact Christopher Allen Varlack directly at if you are willing to help with this important process, providing 1) your areas of expertise, 2) your academic rank/institution (independent scholars and advanced graduate students are most welcome to participate), and 3) your contact information. We would like to thank you for your consideration and valuable service to SSAWW. Selected reviewers will receive a letter of appreciation in response and can include their service as part of their CVs.
