The conference will be organized around a number of panels, each featuring
three twenty-minute papers, scheduled across the day. We hope that the day

BITCH, WITCH, WHORE: REPRESENTATIONS OF WOMEN IN WORD AND IMAGE
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: JOANNE HOLLOWS (NOTTINGHAM TRENT)
An Inter-disciplinary Postgraduate Conference
University of Newcastle, 26 May 2006

Both historic and contemporary representations of women in word and image are understood, all too often, through the madonna/whore dichotomy: from the delicate Victorian waif to the red-lipsticked vamp of fifties film noir; from Molly Bloom to Buffy. This conference will consider iconic representations and enduring archetypes of women, addressing their persistent appeal and exposing their limitations. What makes certain versions of femininity archetypal? Can they be subverted, challenged, and/or reclaimed?

Writing in the Interdisciplines: A Student's Guide to Writing about

Proposals/contributions are invited for an edited anthology offering
concrete advice to undergraduate students on approaches to writing on
literature, media, and cultural studies. This collection is intended
for interdisciplinary courses in departments such as American
Studies, Women's/Gender Studies, and Ethnic/Area Studies in which
students have had little or no previous training on writing about
cultural texts (i.e. literature, film, television, and music).

Entries may cover issues such as style, technical terms, critical
theories, research approaches, and more.
