Miss Ann and Mister Charlie: Confronting Whiteness

CAAS Board-Sponsored Panel

The popularity of the Wypipo as a Twitter hashtag has drawn new attention to the ways in which various communities have long critiqued the ways of whiteness and its practitioners from beyond the academy. This board-sponsored panel invites papers that consider such critiques, whether historical, virtual, literary, cinematic, or beyond.  Topics might include white fragility, Women’s Marches, cultural products such as Dear White People, viral Beckys, and more.

CFP: Louisa May Alcott Society

American Literature Association Conference, San Diego, CA, May 21-24, 2020

For over a century, Louisa May Alcott’s writings have been adapted in many ways—for stage, radio, television, and film. As scholars such as Beverly Lyon Clark, Elizabeth Keyser, Elise Hooper, and others have documented, Alcott’s work remains timely and continues to inspire adaptations and spinoffs for diverse audiences. The best known, of course, are the numerous film adaptations of Little Women. Each new production of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel both represents and reinterprets the lives of the four March sisters for a new audience.
