The Kate Chopin International Society welcomes proposals for two panels to be held at the 2016 ALA Conference in San Francisco, May 26-29, 2016.
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.
In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.
