The Call for Papers for the L.M. Montgomery and Gender conference has been extended! The new deadline is now, 31 August 2015.

Featured Scholar: Mary Rubio, Interview with Bernadeta Milewski

This is quite a treat. Bernadeta Milewski is a L.M. Montgomery fan who spends much of her time traveling to various sites across Canada, interviewing people and taking photos. Milewski then reports her findings on her Polish language blog or http://destinationgreengables.blogspot.ca.  Milewski was born in Poland and Anne of Green Gables was the first novel she ever read on her own at the age of 8.

Call for Papers: L..M. Montgomery and Gender

From Anne’s initial iconic and heartrending cry in Anne of Green Gables—“You don’t want me because I’m not a boy”—to the pressure on young men to join the war effort in Rilla of Ingleside, and from the houseful of supportive co-eds in Anne of the Island to the tyrannical grandmother in Jane of Lantern Hill, Lucy Maud Montgomery’s work highlights gender roles: how formative and deterministic they seem, and yet

June 20th 2013 Anniversary and Book Launch

We're looking forward to seeing many "kindreds" on Thursday, June 20th at 7PM as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the LMMI, honour two important new donations to the Institute's research collections, and officially launch Anne around the World: L.M.

The PEI news media continues to take a healthy interest in the Conference and things Montgomery:

Friends of the LM Montgomery Institute on CBC

The newly-formed Friends of the LM Montgomery Institute, and their inaugural fundraiser, a Silent Auction running during the Conference, are featured on CBC-TV Charlottetown's Compass newscast (obligatory viewing for all Islanders and Islanders-at-heart). The Friends can be seen in the coveted "You're Watching Compass" intro spot, with the full story at about the 17min50sec mark. Head to http://www.cbc.ca/player/News/Canada/PEI/ and look for the "Compass June 20" video file. 

UPDATE: Epperly Plaza Opening a Grand Success

Though not, technically, a Conference event, Wednesday morning's Epperly Plaza Dedication was a huge success, with the sun breaking through at just the right moment, and nearly 100 people (including many Conference attendees) on hand. Betsy gave a beautiful, heartfelt speech dedicating the space to important women in her life, including her mother and (of course) Maud. It was wonderful to see so many Kindreds on hand, and we're excited to see more of you in the days ahead!
