Kate Chopin in Other Media.  Although there has been significant scholarly attention paid to the literature of Kate Chopin, we are seeking papers or presentations that focus on Kate Chopin in other, less conventional, media, such as films or videos, stories or lore about Kate Chopin, or Kate Chopin in the blogosphere. We encourage innovative proposals. Please submit a 200/250-word abstract, as well as academic affiliation, to Kathleen Nigro at nigrok@umsl.edu <mailto:nigrok@umsl.edu> , by 08 January 2010. Requests for audio-visual equipment must accompany your proposal.
