The relationship of feminist criticism to science has been ambivalent since the early stages of the feminist movement, when learned wo*men and activists such as Margaret Fuller aspired to rival “men of science.” Condemned as the “master’s tools” by some, science and technology have also been praised for their potential to liberate wo*men, especially from reproductive responsibilities and from the Western origin myths associated with biological functions.
The E. E. Cummings Society will sponsor two sessions at the 2017 American Literature Association conference. We invite proposals for papers on any aspect of Cummings' life or work. Proposals that touch upon the following topics will be especially welcome:
* Cummings' early experiments in modernism
* Readings of little-studied Cummings poems
* The new edition of the Complete Poems (2016)
* Influences on Cummings: decadent and symbolist poetry, imagism, and avant-garde painting
* The pacifist poet
* Love and art vs. the unworld of modernity
* Cummings as a post-romantic late modernist (or post-modernist)
