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 Sedgwick Society’s 8th Annual Symposium will take place 7-10 June 2017 at the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. View our CFP here.  Proposals due December 9, 2016. The Society is thrilled to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Mary C. Kelley.

The Society is also seeking proposals for a panel on “Time, Memorials, and Anniversaries” to be presented at the American Literature Association Conference, May 25-28, 2017, in Boston. Read the complete CFP here. Proposals due January 15, 2017.
