The James Fenimore Cooper Society invites proposals for papers to be read at our two sessions at the 2008 Annual Conference of the American Literature Association.
The Society will offer two sessions:
1. Cooper’s Indians, chaired by Professor Barbara A. Mann.
2. TBA, chaired by Professor Signe Wegener. These papers may deal with any aspect of the life or works of James Fenimore Cooper.
Presenters need not be members of the James Fenimore Cooper Society, though we of course hope they will choose to join. Papers presented will, with the authors' permission, be published in the James Fenimore Cooper Society Miscellaneous Papers series and also made available online at the society's website (http://external.oneonta.edu/cooper). Papers may be mildly revised for publication.
Paper proposals should include the paper title, an abstract (approx. 300 words), and an indication whether or not the paper may be published in the Miscellaneous Papers. Generally, proposals for papers intended for the Miscellaneous Papers will receive preference.
Deadline for proposals to be submitted to the chair is December 31, 2007.
