"Illustration and Gender" special issue of NCGS (3/15/15; Summer 2015)

updated: 
Saturday, October 18, 2014 - 2:41pm
Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies

In Reading Victorian Illustration, 1855-1875 (Ashgate 2012), Paul Goldman calls for an "enlargement" of illustration studies; "[t]he breadth and depth of what exists and remains relatively unexplored is staggering" (15). In response to Goldman's call and the increasing critical interest in nineteenth-century illustration, brought about by better digital access and the digitization of obscure materials, we are devoting the summer 2015 special issue of Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies to the topic "Illustration and Gender."

Deadline extended: April 15, 2015

These days the word "craft" gets attached to a lot—from cocktails to crochet, 3D printing to upcycled t-shirts, handmade paper to handmade pickles. And this trend only appears to be growing as craft is closely connected to the DIY movement: a wide-ranging, ever-expanding, and sometimes controversial field of work and play.

Bodies of Bondage: Environments in Women's Neo-Captivity Narratives

updated: 
Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - 9:13am
Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW)

With the conference theme in mind, this panel will consider the liminal spaces and hybrid lives of women in neo-captivity narratives, a term that addresses the broad implications of the captivities about which women write in the 20th and 21st centuries. From early captivity narratives to sentimental novels of seduction and the slave narratives made popular around the Civil War to contemporary neo-slave narratives, women write and narrate stories of captivity that prominently feature their bodies and the various violences and bondages visited upon them, the manner in which they are pursued, controlled, and patrolled, and the possibility for redemption, bodily or otherwise.
