Previously unpublished critical essays are being sought for a new volume in Rodopi Press's Dialogue series on Kate Chopin's The Awakening.

Emerging scholars will demonstrate the following qualifications: M.A., A.B.D., recent Ph.D., instructor, lecturer, or assistant professor status; publications limited to articles in journals, monographs, or chapter studies; and/or a doctoral degree awarded in the past six years. Experienced scholars will demonstrate the following: teach at the associate professor level or above, have at least seven years' experience since the awarding of the Ph.D., be published in book-length studies, and/or be considered an authority or well-known commentator on the title or author.
