This panel seeks papers on the role of German writers on nineteenth century
American literature and on ideas of an American national literary tradition.
What kinds of access to intellectual resources did the study of German
authors provide? How did the role of a potential language barrier reinforce
or dilute the impact of German literature? How did American writers see
Germany in relation to their own nation? Please send 300-500 word abstracts
and brief biographical statements (via snail-mail or email) to Joy
Bracewell, [log in to unmask], 254 Park Hall, Athens, Georgia, 30602-6205.
