The aim of the collection is to analyze the work of this foundational Yiddish writer in comparative context in order to bring to light hitherto unexplored aspects of his achievements.

This panel surveys and celebrates examples of women in collaboration, also taking into account some of the possible challenges associated with women in partnership. How do women's groups or communities handle differences in sexuality, ability, race, ethnicity, and religion among members? What does it mean to be women in collaboration in the Canadian city recently voted worst for women (Edmonton), or the city voted best (Québec City), or the city ranked exactly in the middle (Hamilton)? How have women's communities been depicted in various media, and how have collaborators presented themselves? Submissions should be in keeping with ACCUTE's broad interest in English studies, and work on any time period is welcome.
