This panel will explore women’s involvement in the death and memorial practices of the early modern world. While early modern women were actively involved in the processes that surround death and dying, they are curiously absent from prescriptive advice in ars moriendi treatises of the late sixteenth and seventeenth century, which typically feature a dying man surrounded by a retinue of male advisors and friends. This exclusion creates a disjunction between the representation and the reality of women’s involvement in the rituals of death. This panel will begin to piece apart this disjunction by examining the following questions: What roles did women perform in the rituals of dying, and how were their actions represented in literature or art?

Nella Larsen’s Passing at Ninety
Guest Editor: Donavan L. Ramon, PhD
Assistant Professor of Liberal Studies, Kentucky State University
When Nella Larsen published her second novel Passing in April 1929, the critical reception was mixed. Writing for local papers in New York, some critics found the novel’s conclusion abrupt, ambiguous, and unconvincing. However, Alice Dunbar-Nelson noted that the novel “delights,” while W.E.B. DuBois praised it as a novel “of great moral import.” In his review, DuBois hoped that passing would one day emerge as a “a petty, silly matter of no real importance which another generation will comprehend with great difficulty.”

For thousands of people, violence and persecution drive them from their homeland, seeking safety and solace. Situations of fleeing from violence, political unrest, escaping poverty, seeking freedom, seeking opportunity, joining loved-ones, or environmental disaster (Heartland Alliance), may cause either sudden or planned upheaval. While the threat to life remains constant, the immigration process can take years. Most people take the legal route to move to a new country; others immigrate illegally.
