In this year of the centennial of women’s suffrage in the US, the Fuller and Alcott Societies invite your participation in the Thoreau Gathering (July 8-12, 2020 in Concord, MA).  Our focus will be on gender as part of the Gathering’s larger theme of “Thoreau and Diversity: People, Principles, Politics.”  What did Thoreau’s two most famous female contemporaries in the Concord circle have to say to him, to each other, or to their larger worlds about changing the legal and human status of women?

Natural Philosophy, Literature, and the Embodied Imagination

Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 6:35am

deadline for submissions:

From Tita Chico’s The Experimental Imagination (2019), Karen Bloom Gevirtz’s Women, the Novel, and Natural Philosophy (2014), and Dana Jalobeanu’s “Disciplining Experience” (2014), recent criticism has disrupted the notion of objectivity and detached or modest witnessing that is typically associated with the scientific method and that was put forth by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century natural philosophers, themselves. This panel seeks to explore the connections between seventeenth- and eighteenth-century science and literature by paying particular attention to the role embodiment—broadly construed as corporeality, experientiality, materiality, and/or subject-position—played in both.

CFP -- Doctor Who: New Dawn (Essays on the Jodie Whittaker Era)

Doctor Who: New Dawn is a collection of essays devoted to the era of the first female Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, and the work of showrunner Chris Chibnall. Edited by Brigid Cherry, Matt Hills and Andrew O’Day, and due to be published by Manchester University Press in 2020, the collection responds to the reinvention and ‘new dawn’ of Doctor Who, primarily engaging with the show’s reframing in terms of gender and diversity. Due to an untimely withdrawal, we now invite proposals for a 6,000-word chapter on female fans’ responses to the casting of Jodie Whittaker and/or their reception of a female incarnation of the Doctor.
