Women and Work in Literature: Special Session, Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association Conference, November 11-13, 2016, Pasadena, California

Session Description:
How do writers represent the work of being women—where "work" is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose? How do race, class, sexuality and national identity affect women's ability to define both the meaning of their work and their ability to engage in work?

When the flagship Journal of Victorian Culture announced its intention in 2008 to 'act as a forum for digital research on the nineteenth century and for discussion of its relationship with traditional scholarship,' it was an acknowledgement that a wide range of nineteenth-century research communities had become actively engaged with the imaginative and critical possibilities opened up by the digital world. Since then, its 'Digital Forum' section has included challenging work from a wide range of perspectives and chronicled the growth of this discipline over the past eight years.

What role do religion and secularization play in the rise of the novel? This seminar takes up the insights of postsecular studies to help scholars explore this question in new ways: in Misty Anderson's words, reading religion into rather than out of history, and as Danièle Hervieu-Léger puts it, attending to signs of religion's profound and often surprising transformations in modernity.

Religious and cultural literacy is important for domestic and international politics, the practice of peace, harmony, justice, and social prosperity. Thus, this edited volume will help diminish religious illiteracy. Contributions are welcome from scholars in various disciplines in the humanities.
