The Kate Chopin International Society is seeking individual proposals for two sponsored panels at the 2014 American Literature Association conference in Washington, D.C., May 22-25, 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, womenís 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 Chopinís 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 Heather Ostman (Heather.Ostman@sunywcc.edu) and Kelli O'Brien (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 10, 2014.
