Ecocritical modernist scholars such as Greg Garrard, Anne Raine, and Kelly Sultzbach insist on historicizing modernism in order to effectively critique the relationship between the literatures of this period and the environment. Taking its cue from such methodologies, this panel will explore how modernist writers respond to inhabiting the moment and place of a world at war. In the final century of the millennia, many authors and artists responded to World War I and II through representations of transformed or damaged landscapes and environments. The post-war British landscape, for example, is mainly stamped by the dark depictions of T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, D. H.

The dominant narratives of women in music have neglected, obscured, or minimized the successes and importance of countless female musicians who became the driving forces in the development and success of their genres. Instead, such narratives emphasize the rarity of the female musician or attribute her success to a male mentor, especially in the period before second-wave feminism. While recent research has uncovered the histories of forgotten women in art music, little work has been done on the careers of women in vernacular musics. For instance, Ruth Alice "Ronnie" Gilbert was a founding member of the Weavers, a long-time activist in social issues, and a highly influential singer-songwriter who is often overshadowed by Pete Seeger.

Eve’s Sinful Bite: Foodscapes in Italian Women’s Writing, Culture and Society

The multifaceted relationship between women and food in Western culture is captured by the Christian myth of the Fall narrated in Genesis with the episode of Eve and the apple. Eve’s sinful bite represents a key symbolic meeting between women and food in a long list of metaphorical meanings associated with the act of eating and ideas of femininity in the collective imaginary. Food and eating-related-activities, such as cooking and serving meals for the family, have often been seen as signifiers of something else in women’s lives: lust, affection, desire for emotional shelter and expression of frustration, to mention only a few of the nuances associated with food consumption.
