Join us for the conversation on Saturday, November 4, 2017, 1:45-3:15 PM (Session 9-24) in Piedmont 8 at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta, Georgia.

With the roundtable format, we’ll have plenty of time for a wide-ranging conversation about Wharton and the continuing “re-mediation” of her work in contemporary culture. SAMLA’s theme this year isHigh Art/Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture. Our roundtable includes three panelists: Alexis Williams, Middle Tennessee State University, on “Lilies, Dandelions, and the Price of Privilege: Wharton’s The House of Mirth and Kohan’s Orange is the New Black,” Mary Carney, University of North Georgia, on “Re-Framing Wharton: Interpreting Wharton’s Milieu via Modern Photography,” and Monica Miller, Middle Georgia State University on “Finding Edith Wharton: Archival Discoveries and the Popular Imagination.” Join us to share your insights about Wharton and popular culture.

EW Expert on In Morocco needed for article

From Abbie Kozolchyk:

I’m a journalist who’ll soon be embarking on a trip—and article—based on Wharton’s time in Morocco. I’m wondering if anyone at the Society happens to specialize in this chapter of her life, or could recommend an appropriate scholar. I’d be looking for some background context, as well as some quotes for the story.

Many thanks in advance,
