CFP: Rediscovering and Recovering Women Writers from American Periodicals
at SSAWW 2018 Triennial Conference
As more periodicals from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries are digitized and made available in online databases, many forgotten or neglected women writers are becoming visible again. One paper on this panel will examine abolitionist novels published in the nineteenth century by British writers Harriet Martineau and Frances Trollope in the American weekly newspaper The National Anti-Slavery Standard. Another paper will address the difficulties and rewards of assembling the short fiction of writer Belle K. Maniates, who published hundreds of stories in daily newspapers around the U.S. in the first decades of the twentieth century. We are seeking one-two additional papers for a SSAWW ’18 panel on the topic of rediscovering and/or recovering women writers from American periodicals. Please send a 250-300 word abstract and short CV to Dr. Patricia Oman (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Thursday, February 15, 2018.
