Work, Class, Labor, and Culture in American Literature: Labor, Art, & Politics in American Literature and Culture

This panel welcomes papers focusing on the intersection of labor, art, and politics in American literature and culture. Suggested topics range from African-American work songs to regionalist painters such as Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood to representations of labor by authors from Rebecca Harding Davis to Tillie Olsen and John Steinbeck. In essence, we are interested in papers that discuss how artistic representations of all types engage with the politics of labor. By June 1, 2015, please submit a 250-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Owen Cantrell, Georgia State University at
