Elizabeth Beaulieu

I am seeking proposals for 10-minute presentations on the topic of women
in August Wilson's cycle of plays. I hope to put together a roundtable
for ALA in Boston (May 24-27, 2007) on the often-unappreciated role
women play in Wilson's depiction of twentieth-century African American
experience.

Please send abstracts of approximately 200 words to
beaulieea_at_appstate.edu by December 1, 2006. I would like to include
short papers on 6 or 7 of Wilson's plays, as well as time for discussion
among panelists and audience members.
