Texts, Contexts, and Subtexts: Charlotte Perkins Gilman in Her Time
Charlotte Perkins Gilman Society CFP American Literature Association (ALA) 28th Annual Conference
May 25-28, 2017
Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s articles, letters, papers, and library underscore a central quality of her diverse and prolific career: her works were deeply engaged with the social and scientific milieus of her time. An avid reader, enthusiastic learner, and active member within her own intellectual communities, Gilman often reached out to those whose work she admired – as well as to those whose work she found lacking. Through her lectures, publications, and correspondence, Gilman impacted a broad cross-section of scholarly and literary discourses.
