Jaclyn, Great to get an email from you! Coincidentally, I was in touch with Laura about the Red Cloud Conference that I'm sure you got the notice about. I may, pending $ from my college, present my chapter on PH.
Oh boy, oh boy, would I love to go to Ireland with a Cather cause though. The transatlantic topic might be a tough keyhole for me to pass through though, with my writings on PH, MA, SSG, and MME. Maybe the MME would work. Hmmm. Thoughts on how those texts would work "transatlantically"? How strict do you think the call for manuscripts will be with that focus?

Subject: [5BANKSTREET] Transatlantic Conference in Ireland
I am so pleased to share a call for papers for a conference happening in Donegal in January. The theme of the conference is Transatlantic Connections. Papers are welcome in the areas of history, film studies, surf culture, food culture, and literature. The literary panel, which I will be moderating, is open to both creative and critical work. I would like to propose a panel on the theme of Transatlantic Connections in Cather's work.
Some more details on the conference:
Date and Time: Donegal from January 15-18th 2014
Conference Website: http://depts.drew.edu/grad/transatlantic/Conference.html
