Kate Chopin: Open Panel

To encourage an interdisciplinary dialogue about Chopin's works, the Kate
Chopin International Society is proposing an open panel for the American
Literature Association 20th Annual Conference, which will take place on
May 21-24, 2009, in Boston, MA. Interdisciplinary approaches which take
into account, for example, contemporary history or economics, gender
politics, sociological movements, or psychological theories, might serve
as suggestions; however, the panel is open to other approaches as well.
Panelists are strongly encouraged to explore Chopin's lesser known works
in addition to her The Awakening. Chopin's work is often remarked upon for
the originality of its perspective about existing institutions, so the
Kate Chopin International Society encourages new ways of viewing the
Chopin canon.

Please send 250-400 word abstracts and a short biographical statement to

Staunton at <> by 9 January
