Gustke Published in ‘Cather Studies 11’

Charmion GustkeBelmont English Department Lecturer Charmion Gustke recently wrote an article entitled “The Trafficking of Mrs. Forrester: Prostitution and Willa Cather’s A Lost Lady” that will appear in “Cather Studies 11: Willa Cather and Modernist Crux,” a collection of essays published by the University of Nebraska Press.

Gustke’s article explores the exchange and objectification of Cather’s illusive Mrs. Forrester in light of the rise of prostitution in Denver in the early 1900’s and the subsequent social outcry against “the white slave trade.”
