CFP for SSAWW 2018: Stowe’s Resistance, Resisting Stowe
EXTENDED Deadline: February 13, 2018
Contact: Allison Speicher, Eastern Connecticut State University
The Harriet Beecher Stowe Society invites paper proposals for the SSAWW 2018 Triennial Conference, to be held in Denver, Colorado November 7-11, 2018. This panel will focus on the complexity of Stowe’s legacy, from her exemplary role as a vocal critic of social ills to the occasions when modern readers wish to resist her political views. We welcome papers on the social issue with which we most commonly associate Stowe—slavery—as well as papers that explore her responses to other social issues or illuminate her impact on other protest writers. Given the conference theme, “Resistance and Recovery across the Americas,” we particularly welcome papers that focus on Stowe’s lesser-known works. Please send a 250-300 word abstract, a biographical statement (no longer than 60 words), and a brief CV to Allison Speicher (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, February 13.
Harriet Beecher Stowe Up and Coming Scholar Award
Graduate students who are interested in presenting on this panel are also eligible to apply for the Harriet Beecher Stowe Up and Coming Scholar Award, which comes with a $100 prize to help offset the cost of conference travel. To submit a paper for this award, please send an essay of no more than eight pages (along with the documents requested above) to email@example.com by Friday, February 13. Papers should not have your name or any identifying information on them, as they will be reviewed anonymously by Stowe Society members.
