Storm and Dissonance: L.M. Montgomery and Conflict
Call for Proposals 2006

The L.M. Montgomery Institute is calling for one-page proposals for
papers to be given at the Seventh International L.M. Montgomery
conference (June 21-25, 2006) entitled "Storm and Dissonance: L.M.
Montgomery and Conflict".

We invite submissions concerning any conflict, controversy, debate,
interruption, passionate dialogue, or dialectic revealed in or inspired by
Montgomery's writing, life, or surrounding culture.

We encourage you to think about the many ways that public skirmishes
and private arguments surface in the life writing and enliven the fiction.
