The Catharine Maria Sedgwick Society promotes the study and awareness of Sedgwick’s life and works. We aim to increase availability and access to her writings and offer a forum for established and emerging scholars, as well as others interested in Sedgwick, to exchange ideas, research, and pedagogical strategies.

The Society is currently accepting abstracts for a panel to be held at the 2018 Society for the Study of American Women Writers Conference, to be held November 7-11 in Denver, CO. Read the call for papers here.

Many thanks to those who participated in our 8th Symposium in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, in June 2017. The full program can be found here.

See our News and Notes for CFPs and the “Just Read One – Sedgwick Story Challenge”.

For queries about the Society or about Sedgwick’s career, email our president, Cindy Damon-Bach, who is working on a biography of Sedgwick.
