Ellen Glasgow Society at ALA
The Ellen Glasgow Society seeks paper proposals for two sessions at the
30th Annual American Literature Association Conference.
Ellen Glasgow: Across the Canon I and II
Papers that explore any aspect of or work in Glasgow’s canon and career are welcome. Studies of works historically lacking significant critical assessment are particularly welcome. The following titles suggest a variety of possible topics and approaches:
The Urban Ellen Glasgow
Glasgow as Travel Writer
Cross-Genre Analysis: Glasgow’s Fiction vs. Poetry
Glasgow and the Critical Tradition Surrounding Her Canon
Glasgow Family Values
Glasgow and Animal Studies
Will Success Spoil Ellen Glasgow?: Glasgow in the Classroom
Who’s Afraid of Ellen Glasgow?: The Author and the Publishing Establishment
In the interest of celebrating the diversity of Glasgow’s oeuvre and in an effort to practice innovative scheduling, please submit to the email address below 250- to 300-word proposals for presentations no shorter than 12, but no longer than, 20 minutes (6 to 10 pages, respectively). These panels each can consist of up to five shorter presentations or a combination of longer and shorter presentations totaling 60 minutes of reading time and 20 minutes for questions and discussion per panel.
Graduate students are particularly encouraged to submit proposals. Authors are encouraged to submit completed essays for publication in an upcoming issue of the Society journal, The Ellen Glasgow Journal of Southern Women Writers.
