CFP: Nathaniel Hawthorne Society ALA 2021

The annual conference of the American
Literature Association will be held at the Westin Copley Place in Boston, MA on
July 7-11, 2021. The Nathaniel Hawthorne Society seeks proposals for the
following panel:



 



Hawthorne and Fatherhood



 



We invite proposals for papers exploring
aspects of “Hawthorne and Fatherhood.” This may include, but is not limited to:
Hawthorne as father; Julian’s and Rose’s memories of their father; missing
fathers (as in Hawthorne’s own); father stand-ins, such as grandfather in "Grandfather’s
Chair"; Dimmesdale as deadbeat father or Chillingworth as want-to-be
father, leaving his money to Pearl; Coverdale and Hollingsworth avoiding
fatherhood, though the latter wants to be some great paternal figure; barren
men and husbands, as in The House of Seven Gables; or other fathers in
Hawthorne’s shorter fiction.



 



Please submit abstracts of approximately
250 words to Nancy Sweet nsweet@csus.edu by February 15, 2021.
