As we are finalizing the program for the Society for the Study of
American Women Writers Conference, to be held November 8-11, 2006, in
Philadelphia, we have decided to add a session, hopefully of between two
and four panels, on two areas that are relatively new for the SSAWW:
1. women's popular culture and 2. third-wave feminism.

If you are interested in presenting a paper on either of these two broad
topics, please contact me (at dek7_at_lehigh.edu) as soon as possible, but
definitely before June 30.
