The Kate Chopin International Society is seeking individual proposals for two sponsored panels at the 2021 American Literature Association conference in Boston, Massachusetts, from July 7-11 2021.

The first panel, a roundtable on “Teaching Kate Chopin,” seeks short (seven- to eight-minute) papers/remarks that address an aspect of or strategy for teaching Chopin’s life or work. Proposals should include a title, your name and affiliation, and a paragraph about your proposed remarks.

The second panel seeks proposals relating to any aspect of Chopin’s life or work. Proposals for presentations no longer than twenty minutes should include a title, your name and affiliation, and a 200- to 400-word abstract.

**Note: There are virtual presentation options for those who are unable to travel to attend the conference, so please submit your ideas even if you cannot physically attend! 

Send submissions for both the roundtable and the open session on or before 21 February 2021 to both Kate O’Donoghue (State University of New York: Suffolk County Community College) and David Z. Wehner (Mount St. Mary’s University).
