"Women's Autobiography: Private Memories, Public Voices." Panel for Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA), Philadelphia, March 2-5, 2006.

This panel will examine critical questions about women's autobiographical writing, a topic which has generated wide interest over the past three decades. Looking at women's writing in this genre from historical and theoretical perspectives complicates the issues raised in discussions of autobiographical writing and identifies the use of strategies such as imitation, masquerade, subversion, and disruption of conventions. Papers may focus on different types of autobiographical writing by women in different historical time periods and cultures.

CFP: Attending to Early Modern Women: Workshop Proposal Deadline (8/22/05; 11/9/06-11/11/06)

The deadline looms for interdisciplinary workshop proposals for
"Attending to Early Modern Women--and Men." We hope you are drafting a
proposal!

While the keynote address and plenary speakers will concentrate on what
scholars of early modern women can learn from considering men and
masculinity, workshops may consider masculinity or continue past
conversations about women and gender. Workshops should, however, focus
on one of the plenary topics themselves: theorizing gender, childhood,
violence, and pedagogies.

Proposals are due by AUGUST 22, 2005. The conference convenes in College
Park, MD, November 9-11, 2006.
