August Wilson Society, American Literature Association Conference 2014, Washington, DC

By Mike Downing

The second annual August Wilson Society panel was held in Washington, DC on May 23, 2014.  IMG_20140523_123040_884

Session participants include (from left), Sandra Shannon, Jacqueline Zeff, Anthony Pennino, Elizabeth Pittman, and Michael Downing.

The papers were excellent, the session was well attended, and a lively discussion ensued.

As a sidenote, I was happy Alan Nadel could attend.  Alan and I have exchanged numerous emails related to August Wilson, so it was nice to put a face to a name.

Next year’s conference (2015) is slated for Boston, Mass.  The CFP for the August Wilson Society will be available in the fall of 2014.

    1. The papers are going to be published here, in the Fall of 2014 via the Making Connections: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Cultural Diversity journal, sponsored by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and the Frederick Douglass Institute Collaborative.

      I’m about to publish the entire video recording as a separate blog entry. Look for that on the front page of this blog, posted June 10, 2014.

      Thanks!
