Alice Munro and the Body
This panel seeks papers on representations of the body in fiction by Nobel laureate Alice Munro. How do Munro's depictions of the body—and especially the body of the 'other'—work within and against social conventions? What is the relationship between bodies and the language used to represent them? How do Munro's treatments of the body engage with generic conventions including those associated with the Gothic and with regional literatures?
