Call for Proposals

Kate Chopin Panels at ALA 2021

By the Editors of KateChopin.org

The Kate Chopin International Society is seeking individual proposals for two sponsored panels at the 2021 American Literature Association conference in Boston, Massachusetts, from May 27–30, 2021.

The first panel, a roundtable on “Teaching Kate Chopin,” seeks short (seven- to eight-minute) papers/remarks that address an aspect of or strategy for teaching Chopin’s life or work. 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 on or before 5 February 2021 to both Kate O’Donoghue (State University of New York: Suffolk County Community College) and David Z. Wehner (Mount St. Mary’s University).
