"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.

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