This panel re-engages with Charles Brockden Brown, one of America’s earliest novelists and a literary icon in Pennsylvania. As a practitioner of experimental writing that anticipates much of post-structural and post-colonial thought, Brown forces us to question how ‘contemporary’ these critical frameworks truly are. His shift toward conservatism, his later interrogations of History, and his importance as a particularly ‘American’ voice (praised by Hawthorne and Poe alike) makes Brown a figure worthy of continued study. Please submit 250 - 500 word abstract to Michael Blouin by no later than September 30th, 2013.
