Panel 1: The Spy, Bicentennial: James Fenimore Cooper, The American Author

To celebrate the bicentennial of The Spy’s (1821) publication, the James Fenimore Cooper society invites proposals for papers that explore Cooper’s genre shaping novel and its impact on the nation (and world) from a variety of perspectives and approaches. Preference will be given to proposals that focus on the role of the novel as our first major historical novel and first major spy fiction. Please submit a 250-word abstract, a brief cv (2-3 pages), and an indication of whether or not the paper may be published in the James Fenimore Cooper Society Journal by February 19, 2021. Please also indicate any audio-visual requirements. All proposals should be both pasted into the text of the email and included as attachments (word files or pdfs preferred). For additional information, please visit the James Fenimore Cooper Society webpage for resources and visual archives: (https://jfcoopersociety.org/)
