The Charles Chesnutt Association will host a panel discussion on his works at the 2012 SAMLA Conference, which will be held in Durham, NC on November 9-11. This discussion will focus on the perspective of his work as it moved through the post-Reconstruction era into the Harlem Renaissance or from the late Nineteenth to the early Twentieth Century. Papers that address this topic or the way in which his work reflects the memory of these movements and hallmarks are strongly encouraged. Please e-mail abstracts for proposal to Elizabeth G. Allen (The University of Memphis) at egallen@memphis.edu. The deadline for submission is June 1, 2012
