Long & Winding Road to Fort Worth – Part 2

February 4, 2011 at 8:09 pm (jasna) (, , , )

JASNA has posted the “breakout speaker” sessions!

My own talk, “A House Divided? How the ‘Sister Arts’ Define the Dashwood Sisters,” is among those up first: Friday, 14 October 2011 at 3:00 p.m.

I have to miss a couple papers I’d love to hear, but what others to choose?? One I simply MUST attend: Kristen Miller Zohn, “Tokens of Imperfect Affection: Portrait Miniatures and Hairwork in Sense and Sensibility. Fascinating subject! For the Smiths & Goslings speak so many times about hairwork, that I’ve begun to “keep” hair myself (a nice lock of my own hair, and my of mother).

Check out the schedule here.

    Hi Kelly! I am just seeing this – that you have a slot at Fort Worth! – excellent news for you! The schedule indeed looks cram-packed with too many each session to choose from – as always hoping that the ones ones missed will be in the Persuasions for that year…

    So Congrats to you – looks like a great talk!

      Hi, Deb!

      Yeah, I was pretty pleased when the acceptance letter came. I’m really *thrilled* by the topic (music and art), though a little daunted to see the paper is in the first session on the first day… I had submitted paper proposals to Philadelphia and Portland (Ore.) — so Third Time Lucky!

      I hadn’t planned on submitting more to Persuasions, but (at present) do plan to submit it to the journal. I have a LOT to say on the topic; so I do hope people will find it of interest.

    BUT the good news about going in the first session first day is that you can enjoy the rest of the conference without worrying about your talk! – You should definitely submit it to Persuasions – can’t hurt.

    Perhaps you would like to give the talk to JASNA-Vermont next year?? Let me know more about it – I am still penning in the schedule for 2012+..

      I hope you got my email (sent to the gmail account); I’d be honored to re-present “A House Divided?” at a JASNA-Vermont meeting. Let me know what slot(s) you have available.
