CFP: [Gender Studies] The Madwoman in the Attic After 30 Years (collection)

updated: 
Friday, October 5, 2007 - 3:52pm
Annette Federico

I welcome abstracts and full essays for a proposed edited collection which
would reassess the influence of Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar’s The
Madwoman in the Attic after thirty years. I welcome essays that explore the
legacy of this groundbreaking work for feminist theory and
nineteenth-century literary studies through rereadings of the primary
texts; readings of other works through the book’s critical paradigm; and
explorations of its critical history, especially when placed in relation to
competing theories and critical voices.
Abstracts should be approximately 500 words long. Please submit abstracts
or full essays by email attachment to Annette R. Federico at
