Rethinking Marilyn Monroe

Call for Panelists: Western Association of Women Historians, Denver, CO, May 12-14, 2016

Panel: “Rethinking Marilyn Monroe”

This panel will reexamine Marilyn Monroe as a major historical and pop cultural figure. Papers should explore Monroe from new perspectives, challenging common assumptions and making us question what we think we know about this emblem of mid-century womanhood and sexuality. Topics might include resituating Monroe’s films in historical context; reconsidering her status as a postwar icon; exploring her challenges to the Hollywood system; reassessing the meaning of her image in American culture over the decades; others.

Please submit a 200-250 word proposal and an updated c.v. to cpitzulo@westga.edu by August 15, 2015.
