Hawthorne Society Summer Meeting 2016 (Stowe, VT) 口頭発表募集

2016年6月2日〜5日に開催される米国Nathaniel Hawthorne Society の2016年大会の口頭発表募集のおしらせが届きました。以下に概要を掲載いたします。プロポーザルの応募締め切りは2015年12月11日です。ご関心のある方は、詳細をSamuel Coale先生(samcoale[at]cox.net)までお問い合わせください。

The 21st Summer Meeting of the Nathaniel Hawthorne Society
June 2-5, 2016
The Stoweflake Inn, Stowe, Vermont

During an extended period of self-imposed isolation following his graduation from Bowdoin, Hawthorne embarked on a tour of New England and the Hudson Valley. In 1832, he visited Burlington, Vermont, where he enjoyed the town square and Lake Champlain, and made observations about the locals, especially the Irish laborers. In the December 9, 1835 edition of New England Magazine, Hawthorne published an anonymous account of his visit to Burlington, titled “The Inland Port.” In the following years, he would make several more references to Vermont in various sketches. Pursuing these lesser-known but fruitful connections, the Nathaniel Hawthorne Society is pleased to host its next summer meeting in Stowe, Vermont.

While we eagerly welcome papers inspired by or in the spirit of this tour, we also invite proposals for papers on any topic related to Hawthorne and his circle. Fully developed sessions, with three speakers and their abstracts and a chair, may also be submitted.

You need not be a member of the Nathaniel Hawthorne Society to submit a proposal, but all presenters must be members of the society.

Send proposals to Sam Coale at samcoale[at]cox.net by December 11, 2015.
