The feminist movement has been categorised as a series of different waves, first, second and third, with some contemporary critics suggesting we are now on the precipice of a fourth wave. Each of these stages had their own aims and means of achieving those aims: underlying all was a quest for equality, for some or for all. Increasingly this neat categorization of the feminist movement has been questioned and challenged, especially with the internet age offering a greater platform of communication for female-identified individuals and feminists alike.

In the impasse induced by crisis, being treads water; mainly, it does not drown. Even those whom you would think of as defeated are living beings figuring out how to stay attached to life from within it, and to protect what optimism they have for that, at least. - Lauren Berlant, "Cruel Optimism"

Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women's roles in society. This panel welcomes papers about any aspect of nineteenth-century feminism. Comparative approaches are welcome. By June 18, 2015, please submit a 250-300 word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Elena Shabliy, eshabliy@tulane.edu.
