We are seeking participants for a panel on innovative approaches to teaching the work of Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Many of us who would not consider ourselves Gilman specialists teach her work regularly, and this panel aims to introduce new voices to the discussion of her work. We are especially interested in panelists who teach works other than "The Yellow Wall-Paper" but will also consider particularly fresh strategies or contexts for the teaching of this classic story as well.

Dr Ben Parsons, University of Leicester

Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed, open-access online journal produced by members of the School of English. Issued once a year since 2006, its remit is to publish leading research from academics at the very beginnings of their careers (graduate study, post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the community. This approach also includes the notion of 'work in progress' and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or Heads of Departments.

Doll Encounters, a panel at the (dis)junctions Humanities and Social Sciences Graduate Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb 11

updated: 
Monday, January 7, 2013 - 9:29pm
University of California, Riverside

When we encounter dolls as grown-ups, what is it that we are encountering? What might personal and cultural doll-identifications betray about relationships with the past, with gender and sexuality, with play, with tenderness and with terror? This panel invites submissions which reflect upon the sociocultural meaning of the doll as text, as artifact, or, more traditionally, as an enduring literary and filmic obsession. In psychoanalysis as well as in the popular imagination, dolls have long played the role of uncanny object. This panel is particularly interested in the way in which new technologies, products and markets have uncannily reproduced, intensified and responded to anxieties and hauntings from the past.
