The following is a call for papers for a symposium/exhibit scheduled at Ryerson University in Toronto on Monday, April 7, 2008. The deadline for submissions is February 20.
We invite proposals of 250 to 500 words for a symposium/exhibit that coincides with the centenary anniversary of Anne of Green Gables in 2008. We are looking for proposals for 15-minute papers and creative pieces related to any aspect of this classic novel. The range of topics is open and papers focusing on the novel’s interpretation, its composition, or its cultural significance, are all equally welcomed. Creative pieces can take the form of an imagined story, a performance, an installation, fashion design, or digital media: please provide low resolution samples where appropriate. Ryerson Press was the first Canadian publisher of Anne of Green Gables in 1942, and we are proud to host this event at Ryerson University on April 7, 2008.
