"Like Water going back to itself": Gender, Place and Culture in 20th Century American Fiction
The gendering of space and the spatializing of identity are processes of much interest in contemporary culture study. This panel will examine women's representations of place and emplacement in American Women's Literature of the 20th century. From the closing of the frontier at the end of the 19th century to women's continued struggles to escape the domestic sphere at the end of the 20th, American conceptualizations of identity have always been preoccupied with space, fixity, and mobility.
