Anne of Green Gables: New Directions at 100

Since its first publication in 1908, L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green
Gables has been a remarkable success with a worldwide following of
readers and an energetic scholarly engagement over the past two decades.
As the novel enters the second centennial of its publication, the
University of Toronto Press is interested in publishing a collection of
scholarly essays dedicated to the topic Anne of Green Gables: New
Directions. The editor is interested in papers related to any aspect of
L.M. Montgomery’s Anne, including its inspirations, its sequels, and its
remarkable cultural impact. Innovative approaches including
interdisciplinary perspectives that make us see Anne and the world of
Avonlea in new ways are particularly encouraged. Papers should engage
with relevant scholarship and be written in lively and accessible prose.
Illustrations and formerly unpublished material are particularly
welcomed. Twenty-five-page papers, including endnotes and bibliography,
should be accompanied by a bio-sketch and abstract. All essays are
subject to blind peer review.

Please submit your paper to the editor:
Dr. Irene Gammel
Department of English
Ryerson University
350 Victoria Street, Toronto M5B 2K3
T: 416-979-5000 ext. 6588
