Deadline for all proposals: October 15, 2005

I am coordinating a set of panels on the topic of "Regional Mothers and
Motherhood" at the national College English Association conference, for
which I am interested in receiving individual or panel presentation
proposals that address ways in which art, film, literature, and other
media have used the figure of the mother to define, represent,
reinscribe, cross, blur, deconstruct, or transgress geographical,
historical, cultural, and/or ideological regions.

Submission Deadline : July 1st
Publication decisions will be made by September 1st
In many modern and contemporary narrative acts of psychological and physical violence among women, violence has been interpreted and presented in terms of Freudian envy, spaces for male pleasure, negotiating conflicts in a male world, biological determinism (the over protective mother), or as non-existent, i.e. created by males (women are peacemakers and nurturers, neither inherently violent nor evil) etc.

Proposed Panel: Renaissance Girls
Renaissance Society of America Conference
San Francisco, March 23-26, 2006

We are looking for one paper that addresses the topic of Renaissance
girls for a proposed panel at the 2006 Renaissance Society of America
Conference. Proposals are welcome from all disciplines and need not be
limited to England.

The panel aims to bring together the emerging field of Girls Studies with
the burgeoning scholary interest in Renaissance childhood. What was the
place of female children in Renaissance culture and society? How were
they represented in literature, drama, and art? And how did girlhood
compare to boyhood?
