Anne of Green Gables: New Directions at 100

This member-organized session of the 2008 ACCUTE conference at the
University of British Columbia welcomes proposals for papers that will
coincide with the centennial anniversary of the publication of an important
Canadian literary classic, Anne of Green Gables (1908), and with a national
exhibition Looking for Anne: Tracing Visual Culture and L.M. Montgomery’s
Creative Imagination.

The organizers are interested in proposals related to any aspect of
Montgomery’s text, its cultural production, its reception history, and its
cultural inspirations. Innovative approaches including interdisciplinary
perspectives that make us see Anne and the world of Avonlea in new ways are
particularly encouraged.

The deadline for submissions is November 26. Submitters must be ACCUTE
members in good standing. Proposals should clearly indicate the originality
and significance of the argument and include a list of works cited. Links
to relevant Montgomery scholarship are essential; please visit for an updated list of Montgomery

Please send an electronic copy of your proposal (500-700 words), a
completed Proposal Submitter’s Information Sheet
<>, and a file containing a 100-word
abstract and a 50-word bio-bibliographical note to both co-chairs:
