Women and Work

Society for the Study of American Women Writers
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

The meaning of “women’s work” has never been stable. While women consistently have engaged with both the production of home and labor outside the home, their involvement in what Marx conceptualizes as wage-to-labor power exchange did not achieve heightened visibility in U.S. cultures until the nineteenth century. This panel seeks to address the many ways that women writers explore women’s labor in service to their families, their communities, and their nations, and how this labor contributes to the work of resistance and/or recovery across the Americas. How does women’s labor provide opportunities for collective dissent as well as recovery of women’s work?

ALA 2018: POSTINDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS | San Francisco | May 24-27, 2018

This panel aims to explore the various literary spaces—both urban and organic—that define American literature after deindustrialization. How does the postindustrial economy remake the ways that people work in, live in, rely on, and relate to their built and natural environments? And how, in turn, do those new environmental dynamics reshape contemporary novels and poems?
