The theme of the conference is "Commons," and I will propose a panel that considers the household, family, or other so-called "domestic spaces" as sites in which common social and political ideas and customs were cultivated and contested. Any papers that fits this theme are welcome. Prof. Thavolia Glymph (History, Duke University) will chair the panel. Although my own work focuses on the production of racial ambiguity around freedpeople in the postemancipation US South, there is no temporal or geographic limitations imposed on presenters (beyond the conference's requirement that papers address in some way the literary culture of the nineteenth-century US). Although the deadline for proposals is September 30th, I'd like to get a proposal submitted by the end of July, so please send a brief abstract and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 14th. Preference may be given to earlier proposals.
