      CALL FOR PAPERS

      Symposium on the 19th Century Press, the Civil War,
      and Free Expression

      November 11, 12, 13 1999
      The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

      The steering committee of the seventh annual Symposium on the 19th Century
      Press, the Civil War, and Free Expression solicits papers dealing with U.S.
      mass media of the 19th century. Selected papers will be presented during
      the three-day conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Thursday, Friday, and
      Saturday, November 11-13, 1999.

      The purpose of the November conference is to share current research and to
      develop a series of monographs on the 19th century press, the Civil War and
      the press, and 19th century concepts of free expression. The steering
      committee is proud to announce that papers from the first five conferences
      will be published as a book of readings in 2000.

      The steering committee has selected from past conferences six papers to be
      published in a book called: The Civil War in Fiction and History: From
      Uncle Tom's Cabin to Scarlet O'Hara and Cold Mountain. The committee hopes
      to select as many as fourteen more papers on this topic from future
      conferences to complete this volume, and so is particularly eager to
      receive symposium papers on such topics as The Red Badge of Courage, The
      Birth of a Nation, Gone With the Wind, and Glory.

      The symposium is sponsored by the George R. West, Jr. Chair of Excellence
      in Communication and Public Affairs and the UT-Chattanooga Department of
      Communication and because of this sponsorship no registration fee will be
      charged.

      Symposium headquarters is Chattanooga's historic Read House hotel four
      blocks from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga campus. The hotel
      and the university campus are only blocks from Union and Confederate
      cemeteries, located within sight of both Lookout Mountain and Missionary
      Ridge.

      Deadline: September 1, 1999

      Papers should be able to be presented within 20 minutes, at least 10 to 15
      pages long.
      Send four copies of your paper and a 200-300 word abstract (sending the
      abstract and paper on computer disk will indicate willingness to be
      published in a future volume) to:
