Modernist Misogynies
 
This panel will address the various roles misogyny plays in the formation of
modernism, in particular texts, in the broader cultural movement, and in

Possible topics might include:
-What forms does misogyny take in work by modernist writers, particularly or
generally, and how does misogyny during the modernist period differ from
that expressed in other historical periods?
-How have and how should feminists respond to or redefine the modernist
canon?
-Are there modernist masculinities that do NOT depend on renouncing or
otherwise vilifying the feminine?

Journal of Lesbian Studies has reopened its call for submissions for
the upcoming "Lesbians and Body Image" issue with a probable pub
date of 2007-8. Deb Burgard, Ph.D., Guest Editor, is welcoming
one-page abstracts of articles addressing different aspects of the
theme. Articles may raise more questions than they answer, and may
range from research to theory, academic to personal, for example:

* Does loving a woman change your own body image?

* Are athletic lesbians more or less accepting of their bodies than
non-athletic lesbians?
