Making a Scene - BWWC - June 2-5, 2016

updated: 
Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 11:44am
24th Annual Meeting of the British Women Writers Conference

The theme of the 24th annual meeting of the British Women Writers Conference is "Making a Scene," and we're excited to welcome papers that play with the elasticity of this phrase vis-à-vis eighteenth- and nineteenth-century writings by women. From the sublime panoramas of "Beachy Head' and the scandalous rehearsals of Lover's Vows in Mansfield Park to the landscapes of Helen Huntingdon and the ekphrastic poems of Michael Field, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature by British women writers frequently makes a scene as it considers landscape, theatrical performance and the creation or representation of visual art.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:
•Close readings of texts (written, physical, and/or visual), from any period
