Call for Papers: The Conference on The Conference
Victorians flocked to coasts and shorelines to seek leisure, employment, escape, beauty, death, and the natural world, amongst other pursuits. For Great Britain, an island nation at the centre of an expanding empire, the relationship between natural edge and national border took on increasingly complex resonances as the nineteenth century progressed. This session seeks to explore the investments made by Victorians in coasts both symbolic and literal, including the various aesthetic, industrial, gendered, classed, patriotic, and religious meanings that inhered in representations of the line between land and sea.
We are seeking a third presenter for a proposed panel at the American Literature Association in Boston (May 26-29, 2011). This panel aims to explore representations of poor whites and/or the intersections of whiteness and social class in twentieth-century works. One confirmed paper will examine intertextuality as a form of poor white class consciousness in Barbara Robinette Moss's _Change Me Into Zeus's Daughter_; the other will explore white femininity and class mobility in Zora Neale Hurston's _Seraph on the Suwanee_. Comparative approaches--across races, works, time periods--and papers examining individual works related to the panel theme are equally welcome.
