The Charles W. Chesnutt Association invites proposals for papers on the topic, “Charles Chesnutt: The Past and Future.” This panel seeks to reflect on Chesnutt's place in current literary and cultural studies. While we will consider papers on any aspect of Chesnutt’s work, we are especially interested in papers that engage the following questions:
• What is Chesnutt’s current status in academic studies? What does this status suggest about the future of Chesnutt criticism?
• What have been some of the critical trends in Chesnutt scholarship? What do these trends suggest about Chesnutt’s work or our current scholarly sensibilities?
• What are some new directions in Chesnutt scholarship that offer exciting possibilities for future work?
