Concepts of Identity

Friday, July 19, 2013 - 4:27pm
Saint Bonaventure University English Department

On November 15-16, the English Department at St. Bonaventure University will hold a graduate conference concerned with concepts of identity. The various understandings of identity held by critics, theorists, readers, and writers are embedded in the history of literature and guide its trajectory. Concepts of identity also impact the ways individuals think about selfhood and inform scholarship on critical thinking, composition, and rhetoric. This conference seeks to draw upon a wealth of perspectives from graduate students engaged in the humanities — especially English language and literature and Composition/Rhetoric. We will also consider exceptional submissions from undergraduates as well as students working outside of the aforementioned areas.

Sarah Grand's essays on the woman question published in the North American Review in 1894 coined the phrase 'new woman': Shaw created a series of characters and 'unwomanly' women. Actress/activists like Elizabeth Robins and Cicely Hamilton worked with Shaw and wrote their own feminist plays. This panel will examine the audience impact of these plays. 250 word abstracts to:
