Anne of Green Gables: New Directions at 100

This session of the 2008 ACCUTE conference at the University of British Columbia coincides with the centennial anniversary of the publication of an important Canadian literary classic, Anne of Green Gables (1908) and with an exhibition tour Anne of Green Gables: A Canadian Icon at 100 in venues in Ottawa, Cavendish, Charlottetown, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver.

The scholarly session aims to explore many aspects of L. M. Montgomery’s Anne series including its cultural production, its inspiration, its reception history, and its interpretation. Innovative approaches including interdisciplinary perspectives that make us see Anne and the world of Avonlea in new ways are particularly foregrounded.  

Presenters:
Alexander MacLeod (Saint Mary's), "On the Road from Bright River: Shifting Social Space in Anne of Green Gables"
Jason Nolan (Ryerson), "Anne of the Undead: Changeling Child and the Uncanny in Avonlea"
Alison Matthew David and Kimberly Wahl (Ryerson), "Taste and Transformation: Negotiating Codes of Fashion in Avonlea"
