To mark the 200th anniversary of her birth, the Massachusetts Historical Society, in collaboration with the Margaret Fuller Society, will host an interdisciplinary conference on April 8-10, 2010. The program will combine established scholars with newer voices and will consist of four themed panels and a keynote address. Papers will be substantial, pre-circulated essays, due to the Massachusetts Historical Society by March 8, 2010. Conference organizers have now filled panel slots set aside for invited speakers and ask for paper proposals to fill four additional slots, one on each panel. Proposals from various disciplines welcome. Please key proposals to one of these four panel topics:
"Fuller and Women"--gender studies, 19th-century theories of womanhood, suffrage, work, education;
"Fuller and Antebellum Movements"--Transcendentalism, abolitionism, utopianism, aesthetic and literary movements;
"Fuller and Urban Culture"--reform institutions, literary salons, immigration, class, urban geography, newspapers, book trade, performing and visual arts;
"The Transatlantic Fuller"--advocacy for European authors, translations, travel, contacts with European intellectuals, Revolutions of 1848.
