MLA 2019 panel sponsored by the International James Joyce Foundation

 

The International James Joyce Foundation invites paper proposals for its 2019 MLA session in Chicago.  The session topic is Joyce and women’s legal and civil rights.  Papers might discuss marriage, divorce, inheritance, suffrage, or any other aspect of women's rights in Joyce's work.  In light of contemporary feminist movements, proposals might consider Joyce's place in our current debates or Joyce's influence in similar debates of his time.  Papers that discuss historical and legal aspects of Joyce's work in reference to women's rights are particularly welcome.
