This panel invites submissions that think about the way women writers and artists nationally and globally have confronted the political and legal regulation of women’s bodies, and the way the body itself can subsequently become an important site of socio-political resistance. Paper proposals may consider (but are not limited to) regulatory measures in the areas of reproduction, sexual expression, beauty culture, body modification/transformation, and miscegenation/relational body politics.

Proposals focusing on transnational, multiethnic, and multicultural women writers and artists are especially welcome.
