Inspired by our era of globalization and instantaneous communication, the Duquesne University English Department Graduate Student Conference is asking about access, especially in pre- and early modern literary cultures. As the rise of Disability Studies and Mobility Studies has provided theoretical and linguistic frameworks for defining, explaining, and challenging traditional conceptions of access, we invite literary, historical, and cultural considerations of access. Historically, who has had access? How do texts navigate the political, economic, social, etc. constraints on access? How does asking this question raise awareness of contentious literary spaces?

In the cultural imagination, expressions of the erotic – sex, desire, relationships – are intrinsically linked to gender. Female gender stereotypes are often based in ideas about sexual behavior, from the lustful Jezebel who preys on innocent men to the sexually passive Angel in the House who endures sexuality for the sake of procreation. Similarly, behavior in sexual encounters is often strictly scripted based on gender, with "rules" on everything from who makes the first move to who gets to be on top.
FOCUS: Philosophy and Poetry
We invite scholarly papers that shed light on twentieth century women novelists, playwrights and poets for a forthcoming anthology on twentieth century women writers.
Scope of the volume:
In American history, animals are everywhere. They are a ubiquitous presence in myriad historical, literary, biographical, scientific and other texts and narratives of the American past – a past that, both different from and just like the present, was characterized by a multiplicity of relations between humans and animals ranging from intimate co-existence to exploitation and outright violence. A host of quintessentially American species such as the bison and mustang of the Western plains or the grizzly, admired by California mountain man James Capen Adams as "the monarch of American beasts", continue to inhabit the discursive, imaginary and, now to a much lesser degree, the geographical spaces of the nation.
