Waldo and Henry: Points of Parting
The Ralph Waldo Emerson Society is sponsoring one panel at annual Thoreau Gathering, 2018, in Concord, MA. With the theme ‘Waldo and Henry: Points of Parting.’ The influence of Emerson on Thoreau, and of Thoreau on Emerson, is well known. But this should not hide their differences. In this panel, ‘Waldo and Henry: Points of Parting’, we would welcome papers that productively explore the differences between these two transcendentalists. Themes of particular interest would be: writing, politics, philosophy, influence, friendship, nature, the past, race, the self, gender and the environment.
E-mail 300 word abstracts to David Greenham (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Jan. 12, 2018. Membership in the Emerson Society is required of presenters.
