EAL Conference Reviews (January 2021)

January 29, 2021

Early American Literature seeks conference reviewers for the following conferences.  Conference reviews cover panels relevant to EAL’s readership, encompassing the overall range of the event and addressing key themes of particular interest to the reviewer. Conference reviews are generally 1500-2000 words in length, but they can be longer or shorter depending on the scope of the event. 

We welcome reviewers at all ranks who study early American literature and encourage recommendations for other conferences with an early American literature presence.  We welcome reviewers for conferences, even if the event will be held virtually.  EAL also welcomes proposals for digital conferences, symposia, and/or panel series. If you are interested in participating, please send an email to Katy Chiles at kchiles1@utk.edu.  Please include the conference you’d like to review and a brief description (50 words) of your scholarly interests.
