CFP: Sex, Secularism & Enlightenment (9/15/05; ASECS, 3/30/06-4/2/06)

Tuesday, August 2, 2005 - 4:21pm
Lori Branch

American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
37th Annual Meeting
Montreal, Quebec, March 30-April 2, 2006

Session Title: "Sex, Secularism and Enlightenment"

In <Formations of the Secular>, Talal Asad has described secularism as a
political ideology that took shape in the nineteenth century, based on the
concept of "the secular" that coalesced in early modernity and the
eighteenth century. What role did sex and gender play in this
conceptualization of the secular, in religious and non-religious texts and
identities? What are the sexualized components of a secular identity or
subjectivity? How do they impact the transformation of religious
identities in the period?

CFP: Popular Nineteenth-Century Women Writers in the Literary Marketplace (11/30/05; collection)

Earl Yarington

Cambridge Scholars Press has contacted me and would like me to submit a book proposal on my proposed Society for the Study of American Women Writers panel titled "Popular Nineteenth-Century Women Writers and the Literary Marketplace." Though I can only accept four papers for the conference, I need about twelve to fifteen papers for the book. I would like to get the book proposal out before the end of this year; therefore, please note the deadline listed below. The focus of the book will be on the American marketplace and how women writers dealt with their editors ("gentlemen publishers"). In other words, how did the woman writer's relationship with the publisher influence or change her work?
