TIME TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE ISGlaspell Society!
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.

The International Susan Glaspell Society was formed in 2003, following a year of exciting Glaspell conference panels at the American Theatre and Drama Society section of the American Literature Association Conference in Boston and at the Twentieth Century Literature Conference in Louisville. The growing membership of the ISG Society reflects the continued growth of Glaspell scholarship as more and more academics, scholars, theatre professionals, and general readers realize that Glaspell is a major American woman writer whose remarkable body of work — drama, journalism, short fiction, and novels — has been too long overlooked.
The International Susan Glaspell Society is an Affiliated Society of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW) and as such SGS members enjoy many of its benefits, including access to its 420-member listserv and opportunities to propose and participate in Society-sponsored panels at bi-annual SSAWW conferences as well as at SSAWW-sponsored panels at regional MLA meetings. The Society is also affiliated with five other theatre and dramatist societies: the American Theater and Drama Society (ATDS), the Eugene O’Neill Society, the Arthur Miller Society, the Thornton Wilder Society, and the Lillian Hellman Society. Along with these societies the International Susan Glaspell Society sponsors panels regularly at the American Literature Association Conference, in concert with ATDS at the Association for Theatre in Higher Education Conference, and at the Eugene O’Neill Society International conferences. The Society encourages all of its members to propose, organize, and participate in panels.
Founding members of The International Susan Glaspell Society in 2003 were Martha C. Carpentier, Barbara Ozieblo, Marcia Noe, Lucia V. Sander, Mary E. Papke, and Susan Koprince.

Published by McFarland, Noelia Hernando-Real’s exploration of eleven Glaspell plays written between 1915 and 1943 focuses on one of her major themes, the interplay between place and identity. Hernando-Real examines the means Glaspell employs to engage her characters in proxemical and verbal dialectics with the forces of place that turn them into victims of location, and her characters’ attempts to escape the influence of territoriality and shape identities of their own.
