the University of Lille 3 have been studying together how historical or
literary figures are received and transmitted to the later generations,  i.e.

Feminism(s) 2006: Feminisms and Literature Postgraduate Seminar.
Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK, Saturday 11th November 2006.

    A seminar for postgraduates studying literature and feminism to present and discuss their research. The day is primarily concerned with examining the relationship between feminism and literature, the implications of labels such as 'feminist' or 'women's writing', and the impact of feminist literary criticism and politics upon literature today. It is the discussion of these themes across the different topics which is important – the day is devised as a discussion of similar concerns across literature. We would also like to encourage students working with poets, dramatists as well as fiction writers.
