The Legacy and Influence of Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe certainly has a lasting legacy—new material on her life and career has been published every year since her death over 55 years ago. In light of this fact, our panel seeks to explore the range and variety of Monroe’s impact on sundry areas of film and television including, but not limited to:

-       Hair, makeup, or fashion (especially within the film or television industry)

-       Performances and acting styles of other actors or actresses

-       The emergence of independent production and free-agent stars

-       The definitions of feminism and female sexuality

-       The nature of gossip reporting

-       Genre films (musicals, comedies, biopics)

-       Method acting

-       Cinematic evocations of social and political themes

-       Studio politics and practices

-       Retro styles and representations of the 1950s.

Please submit an abstract of approximately 200 words, along with a short professional biography, to Amanda Konkle at, by August 1.
