In conjunction with the world premier production of Intimations From the Brook, a full-length play adapted from Susan Glaspell’s novel Brook Evans, Northland Pioneer College will host “Susan Glaspell and Performance,” a conference to discuss Glaspell’s work in and for the theatre as well as her artistry, broadly conceived. The conference organizers welcome discussions of Brook Evans and/or other works; artistic or performance approaches to Glaspell (including Interpreter’s Theatre, adaptations , discussions of specific productions); and other topics related to Glaspell.


We invite proposals for individual papers, complete panels, or roundtables/discussion groups.
