Against the warp and disruption of the current tumult, does it persist? Has it devolved to a walled-off and gated insularity? Can we take it with us when we go? Does it belong to us or we to it?

The second half of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of the global women’s movement.Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women’s roles in society. This edited volume Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle (under contract with Cambridge Scholars Publishing) welcomes contributions on any aspect of nineteenth-century literary feminism. Comparative approaches are welcome. By March 8, please submit a 250-300 word abstract and your CV to Dr.

Two decades after the groundbreaking 1997 essay collection Novel Gazing: Queer Readings in Fiction, edited by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, no comparable volume of theoretical engagements with poetry has appeared. This is not because of a lack of significant, queer critical accounts of poetry, then or now. Yet this relatively small body of work in queer poetics has emerged piecemeal, rather than as part of a sustained, collective effort to consolidate a line of inquiry and further a dialogue between queer and poetic theories.
