Shirley Jackson: Power, Identity, Relationships

With the recent film and television adaptations of The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle, as well as the 2010 Library of America edition of her work, there is renewed popular and scholarly interest in Shirley Jackson and her Gothic feminist treatment of power (often expressed through control of language), identity (usually unstable or enforced by violence), and relationships (among family members and between outcasts and the communities than shun them) in mid-twentieth-century American culture. This panel welcomes submissions on any aspect of the work of Shirley Jackson, especially those in line with the conference theme.      

By June 15, 2019, please submit an abstract of up to 250 words, a brief biography, and any A/V requests to Dr. Hugh Davis, Piedmont College, at hdavis@piedmont.edu.
