CFP: Kate Chopin International Society (ALA; Deadline 1.10.15)

The Kate Chopin International Society is seeking individual proposals for two sponsored panels at the 2015 American Literature Association conference in Boston, MA, May 21-24, 2014.

The first panel, a roundtable on “Teaching Kate Chopin in Different Contexts,” seeks short (seven-to eight-minute) papers/remarks that address either teaching Chopin juxtaposed with works/genres or in courses with which she is not always associated or in educational settings such as continuing education programs, prisons, women’s shelters, literacy programs, etc. Proposals should include a title, your name and affiliation, and a paragraph about your proposed remarks.

The second panel seeks proposals relating to any aspect of Chopin’s life or work. Proposals (for presentations no longer than twenty minutes) should include a title, your name and affiliation, and a 200-400-word abstract.

Send submissions for both the roundtable and the open session to both Kathleen Nigro (nigrok@umsl.edu) and Kelli Purcell O’Brien (kobrien1@memphis.edu) by January 10, 2015.
