The Lesser-Known Chopin: What We've Missed/What We're Missing
Though Kate Chopin wrote two novels, dozens of poems, and nearly a hundred
short stories, her critical reputation continues to rest largely on The
Awakening and a handful of very famous stories. But there's more. This
panel will provide a glimpse into some of the remarkable work that has
been too often overlooked by scholars and students alike. For this ALA
panel, which is sponsored by The Kate Chopin Society, papers and
presentations are solicited that explore Chopin's other novel (At Fault),
her lesser-known short stories, or her poetry, as well as her essays,
diaries, and account books. Proposals of 100-150 words should be sent to
Bernard Koloski by January 15, 2006
The American Literature Association's 17th annual conference will meet at
the Hyatt Regency San Francisco in Embarcadero Center on May 25-28, 2006
(Thursday through Sunday of Memorial Day weekend). The deadline for
proposals is January 30, 2006. For further information, please consult the
ALA website at or contact the conference
director, Professor Maria Karafilis of California State University, Los
Angeles at with specific questions.
