CFP: Kate Chopin Society Panels at ALA 2016 (1.15.16)

Please consider submitting a proposal for either of the KCIS’s sponsored panels at the 2016 ALA Conference in San Francisco, May 26-29. Details and contact information are below.

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, or online programs. We also welcome proposals that suggest innovative technological approaches to teaching Chopin’s works. 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- to 400-word abstract.

 Send submissions for both the roundtable and the open session to both Kathleen Nigro ( and David Wehner ( by January 15, 2016.
