CFP: Visualizing the New Woman 1890-1915 (3/15/06; MLA '06)

updated: 
Friday, February 24, 2006 - 4:31pm
Dagle, Joan

Call for papers for proposed special session for MLA '06 in Philadelphia
that will explore representations of the New Woman in American culture
in the period from 1890 to 1915.
To what extent, how, and to what end did venues such as early silent
films or the stage represent the New Woman and to what extent did such
representations "echo" the familiar periodical and newspaper
illustrations of the figure? Other questions that might be addressed:
How are such representations like or unlike those in the literature of
the period? Is there a transatlantic dimension to such images?
Please send 500-word abstracts by March 15 to Joan Dagle
(jdagle_at_ric.edu).
Panelists must be MLA members by April 7.
