Call For Papers–American Literature Association

New Directions in Woolson Scholarship 

The Constance Fenimore Woolson Society welcomes proposals for a session at the next meeting of the American Literature Association, to be be held May 23-26, 2019, in Boston, MA.

We welcome proposals that engage any aspect of Woolson’s work, from “Rodman the Keeper” or “Miss Grief” to lesser-known works, such as Jupiter Lights and “Sister St. Luke.” We particularly welcome work that examines Woolson in new contexts, perhaps in connection with twentieth-century and/or non-American writers or utilizing new theoretical approaches. 

Please send a 200-250 word abstract to Anne Boyd Rioux ( by January 25.
