ESQ: A Journal of Nineteenth-Century American Literature and Culture is seeking participants to cover the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment convention in Detroit this June for its annual “The Year in Conferences” feature.
The ASLE team will cover panels of interest to ESQ‘s readers.  This project is an excellent opportunity for scholarly collaboration and professionalization. YiC has been recognized by scholars not just for its utility but also as a mentoring and networking tool. From the initial recruiting stages to panel selection and publication of the final piece, YiC creates a supportive, collaborative environment that encourages participants to do their best work.  Past YiC writers have found the experience very rewarding.
We seek a team of Ph.D. students working in nineteenth-century American literature.  If you are interested in participating, please send a C.V. and brief message describing your scholarly interests to Marlowe Daly-Galeano at hmdalygaleano@lcsc.edu by March 31.  Applicants will be notified in April.
