Panels are now forming for presentations regarding all aspects (historical, literary, cultural, etc.) of Captivity Narratives. All topics and approaches to the genre are welcomed. Graduate students/future teachers are particularly welcome to participate (with monetary awards for the best graduate student papers) – or to simply register to attend the conference and its captivity narrative panels.

All that is required at this time is a proposal.

If your work does not focus on captivity narratives in particular but fits within the broad range of areas designated for the upcoming conference on American & popular culture, I still encourage you to participate. Please see the conference’s full list of subject areas (each with its own CFP) at

Submit your abstract by 15 November 2016 at

You will need to create a user account in order to submit your proposal.
