Women and Work

Society for the Study of American Women Writers

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?

Revolutionary Texts in a Digital Age: Thomas Paine’s Publishing Networks, Past and Present

updated: 
Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 9:15am
Iona College and the Institute for Thomas Paine Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2018

While scholars of Early America are often careful to avoid anachronism, we are living in a moment of profound contemporary connections with communication networks of the past. In the Age of Revolutions, the creation and dissemination of information cultivated and complicated shifts in political ideology, commercial practices, and imperial infrastructure. Questions of access in these networks, of who can create information, who can circulate and commodify it, and on what terms, directly intersects with ongoing explorations of textual transformation in digital studies.
