18th International Cather Seminar

18th International Cather Seminar

Wednesday, June 21, 2023 to Friday, June 23, 2023
The New School
72 5th Ave
New York, NY 10011
“The City from Greenwich Village,” John Sloan, 1922. Public domain.

We hope you will make plans to attend the 18th Willa Cather International Seminar in the neighborhood where Cather lived between 1906-1932: Greenwich Village. In collaboration with The New School, we are creating a conference that explores the city Willa Cather knew, but also the city that was present around her, though perhaps not always visible to her. Our goal is to intellectually locate Cather in the broader context of New York in the first half of the twentieth century, and, further, to imagine her work as a product of that urban experience.

Willa Cather lived most of her professional writing life in New York (1906-1947), first in Greenwich Village and later, after she had risen to the top of the literary profession, on Park Avenue on the Upper East Side. The city was her home for nearly forty years and a key element of her personal and professional life.
