It is with deepest sympathy and heartfelt sadness that we share the news that Pam Corpron Parker passed away on August 2, 2016. Pam was the co-founder of the 18th- and 19th-Century British Women Writers Association and the keeper of the spirit of this organization and its conference. She welcomed and inspired attendees, mentored graduate student organizers, and advised many organizing committees since the beginnings of the BWWA in 1991. She was an incisive scholar and dedicated teacher and friend to her students at Whitworth University and beyond. Our field and, indeed, our world is the lesser for her absence.
Here is a link to her obituary, where you can also leave a message in the guest book.
As part of our 25th Anniversary conference at UNC-Chapel Hill, in June 2017, we will be sharing remembrances of Pam, and we will also pass them along to her family.
