      Subject: CFP - William Bartram's Manuscripts

      Call for Papers: William Bartram's Manuscripts: A Selection of Unpublished
      Writings with Critical Essays.

      Despite the importance of William Bartram to early national environmental
      history and literature, scholarship tends to focus on his one book, Travels
      in North and South Carolina, Georgia, East & West Florida, the Cherokee
      Country, the Extensive Territories of the Muscogulges, or Creek Confederacy,
      and the Country of the Chactaws (1791). This volume seeks to open new
      opportunity for study by representing the full range of Bartram's writing
      over the course of his long life.

      The proposed volume will consist of two parts. Part One will offer a
      representative sampling of unpublished writings by Bartram: for example, the
      drafts to Travels, his philosophical essays, his weather journal, his
      commonplace book, and selected correspondence. Part Two will include
      interpretative essays that are paired with the primary manuscripts, showing
      how scholars from different disciplines use these texts.

      The editors, Nancy Hoffmann and Thomas Hallock, seek contributions from
      scholars that are familiar with the Bartram archive. Please direct
      inquiries and/or correspondence, by 1 December, to the addresses below:

      Nancy Hoffmann
      U. of Pennsylvania

      Thomas Hallock
      U. of Tampa
