INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
FEBRUARY 3-4, 2006
UNIVERSITY OF SAINT-ETIENNE (FRANCE)

    While 18th and 19th century women were usually confined to the domestic
and national spheres some women indulged their dreams and travelled to
unexplored territories: their journeys to the Orient (Lady Montagu, Lady
Blunt, Gertrude Bell, Amelia Edwards, Freya Stark), to India (Emily Eden,
Fanny Parks), to America (Isabella Bird, Clara Bromley, France Trollope), to
Africa (Mary Kingsley) or to Australia (Daisy Bates) gave rise to
narratives.

Call for Papers: The Figure of the Coquette

The proposed collection of essays seeks to explore the figure of the
coquette in the long eighteenth century (1660-1830), with the aim of
understanding and theorizing the cultural context that produced the figure,
her historical evolution, and her representation in European culture. We
are particularly interested in the coquette as a key site for debates about
women's nature and female roles during this period, ranging from the
misogynist critique of the coquette to explorations of her social power.
Comparatist analyses and cultural studies approaches are welcome, as are
essays addressing modern or contemporary rewritings of the figure of the
coquette
