CALL FOR PAPERS -- Northeast Modern Language Association
Philadelphia, PA -- March 2-5, 2006
"A 'TRU' RETURN: CAPOTE IN 2006"
For this panel, I invite papers considering any aspect of Truman
work or persona. Fresh analyses of his stories, novels, essyas, letters
screenplays are welcome. What sorts of claims might we make to label
"major" American writer? Whta did he contribute to the American canon?
his particular literary gifts? Papers dissecting Capote's public
appearances, his marketing of self or work, his various (and incessant)
portrayals in the
media will also be welcome.
Please send 250-word abstracts by SEPTEMBER 15, 2005 to
