Through consistent creation of powerful female heroines the likes of which we have never seen in Victorian literature, Steampunk has emerged as a strong feminist voice that addresses contemporary and current discourses on femininity simultaneously and rethinks our ideas of Victorian gender roles. This panel seeks to examine how Steampunk Young Adult and graphic novels subvert Victorian patriarchy and Empire by creating an alternate past that reimagines them both. Please submit 300-word abstract and bio.
Area: British, Women's and Gender Studies

Leaps of Faith: Figurations of Belief in Literature and Critical Thought
Comparative Literature Graduate Student Conference, UC Berkeley
The meaning of "women's work" has never been stable. While women have consistently engaged with the production of home as well as labor outside the home, their involvement in what Marx conceptualizes as wage-to-labor power exchange did not achieve heightened visibility in U.S. cultures until the nineteenth century. "Women and Work," a proposed panel for the 2015 SSAWW conference in Philadelphia, seeks to explore the many ways that women have offered their labor in service of their families, their communities and their nations and how this labor constructs a variety of liminal experiences. How does women's labor provide opportunities for collective dissent regarding the ethics of labor practices as well as the continued undervaluation of women's work?

"Soon after the Braincap came into general use, some highly intelligent—and maximally zealous—bureaucrats realized that it had a unique potential as an early-warning system. During the setting-up process, when the new wearer was being mentally "calibrated," it was possible to detect many forms of psychosis before they hand a chance of becoming dangerous."

Imaginaries of the Future: Historicising the Present
This panel seeks fresh scholarly and pedagogical approaches to early American literature (to 1865) through the lens of performance theory and performativity. Proposals can work with intersections between performance theory and a wide range of topics, including ethnicity, identity politics, (trans)national identity, social roles, power relations, democracy, the culture of novel reading, contact literature, missions literature, travel literature, and so on. Special consideration will be given to proposals that tether performance in literary studies to early American history and culture. Proposals working with oral literatures, such as those of Native Peoples, are also welcome.
"Government" and "literature" belong to different spheres, exercise different forms of power, and are studied in different departments. As literary scholars, we often pit literature as a positive (humanizing, expressive, or empowering) force against negative (impersonal, bureaucratic, or oppressive) governments. Or, perhaps more commonly, we treat governments as irrelevant to the production and circulation of literary works. This seminar works to move beyond these familiar positions. We welcome papers from varied national, transnational, and historical contexts that stage the relation between government and literature in new and surprising ways.

The journal seeks to lend additional visibility to the chronicle as an important genre and to promote dialogue on a literary form that has been continually marginalized despite its wide readership and far-reaching influence in Latin America.
