The International Susan Glaspell Society is very active in pursuing our stated mission through publication, conference panels and presentations, and staged readings. The Society offers many opportunities for new scholars of Glaspell’s work to present at major national and international conferences. Additional benefits of membership in this Society are lots of great conversation and association with a community of scholars who appreciate the work of Susan Glaspell and feel that she has been known only for “Trifles” and “A Jury of Her Peers” long enough! We encourage you to join us.
