Literary Floridas: Imaginings in a Wild Peninsula

As a setting, as an actual place in the world, Florida is usually imagined in satirical terms, the eternal provocation to comedians and crime writers with wicked senses of humor. The natural environment is overwhelming in its greenness, its flatness, it humidness, its infernal hotness, its weather, its beasts, and at times its citizens as well. Culturally, there is not much “Old Florida” to be found unless we count the primeval landscape.

NEMLA 2016 Baltimore: Bodies that Become: Conceptions of Female Bodies in Science Fiction

While we may no longer be in the era of binary adjectives classifying bodies into categories that blind them into the oblivion of male and female, the representation of the female body still lacks the means to escape its demarcations. Today, in both novel and film, a disruptive, secondary female character that destructs, tricks or merely accompanies the male body is a common if not normal part of the narrative. This latter is usually perfect in proportions, immobile and does not use her body except for its own objectification. Yet, fictional or science fictional representation of female body is breaking away from this secondary characterization.

Lucas Malet, Dissident Pilgrim: Critical Essays

Popular novelist, female aesthete, Victorian radical and proto-Modernist, Lucas Malet was a literary tour de force in her own day, yet her work has been largely neglected by contemporary readers and critics. A daughter of Charles Kingsley, Malet was part of a creative dynasty from which she drew inspiration but against which she rebelled both in her personal life and her published work. Scholarship by Talia Schaffer and Catherine Delyfer has reopened critical enquiry into the work of this fascinating author, and we are seeking contributions in order to expand this emerging field of study.
