44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 21-24, 2013
Host Institution: Tufts University
This panel invites papers that explore social protest from within the aesthetic conventions of nineteenth-century Anglo-American fiction. How are protests against accepted notions of kinship, class stratification, education, or government indirectly expressed through formal decisions: structure, metaphor, rhetoric, syntax, etc.? Papers that discuss writers operating in or against the genre conventions of romanticism, realism, and naturalism are especially encouraged. Please send abstracts and brief bios to Arielle Zibrak email@example.com.
