Session Description:

What happens after texts are recovered? Once archival recovery expands the number of texts available to readers, most literary histories still reflect only a select canon. This roundtable invigorates conversations about seeing the nineteenth century as a new century by reprinting “new” works and by disrupting the idea of “literature.”


Subjects:

  • American Literature – General

  • American Literature – Before 1900
