The Kate Chopin International Society is seeking individual proposals for two sponsored panels at the 2021 American Literature Association conference in Boston, Massachusetts, from May 27–30, 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.

Send submissions for both the roundtable and the open session on or before 5 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).
