Since her mid-nineteenth-century arrival on America's literary scene, Sarah Piatt has been recognized for her "womanly" subject matter and ethos, and the "feminine" quality of her poetry has been aptly characterized by nineteenth-century British author Alice Meynell "not as a grace, but as a force."

This panel seeks proposals for presentations on Monster studies in general with a secondary focus on the use of monsters as pedagogical tools in the classroom.
