Proposed Panel: New Readings of Ken Kesey

This panel invites presentations on all aspects of Ken Kesey’s art and
writing and particularly encourages presentations that situate Kesey in
contexts that re-assess or look beyond his traditional association with
1960s counter-culture. Possible topics could include: the environment, New
Western History, collaboration (with Ken Babbs or others), depictions of
Native Americans, gender, children’s literature, Kesey post-1960s, etc.
Please send a 250-500 word abstract and brief CV/bio as attachments by
