A Shirley Jackson Renaissance


In the spirit of the current reinvigoration in interest in Shirley Jackson’s work and life—along with the 70th anniversary of the publication of “The Lottery”—this panel is seeking criticism that explores Jackson’s previously unreleased work (i.e., the stories in Let Me Tell You) or lesser known works using any critical frame or approaches her well-known work in a innovative, unconventional or interdisciplinary manner.


Email abstracts of no more than 350 words with short bios as PDF attachment to andersonwires@gmail.com, with subject line “Jackson ALA 2019.” Deadline is December 14, 2018.
