Teaching Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Current Contexts
American Literature Association Conference, Boston, MA May 2009
This panel will include shorter paper and provide a forum for discussion of materials and methods
pertaining to teaching Gilman's work. Gilman's concerns include theories of art, history, economics,
science, childhood education, public planning, natural history and botany. In using fiction and non-
fiction to explore these areas, Gilman affords many different approaches to teaching. How is her
work being taught now?
Contexts may include but are not limited to: Aesthetic Theory, Philosophy, History,
Realism/Naturalism, Theology/Religion, trans-Atlantic modernism and culture, as well as the work
of other writers and fields. Papers considering Gilman's nonfiction are encouraged!
Participants must be or become members of the Charlotte Perkins Gilman Society. Please submit
proposals and 1-pg CV by 1 February to Melina Mamigonian (mmamigonian_at_hw.com).
