Rhetoric of the Wisewoman and the Madwoman: Perspectives on Confined Women Throughout History -- SAMLA 2013

Courtney Polidori/SAMLA

From wisewomen, witches and warriors, to madwomen and monsters, confined females have been represented through a variety of rhetorical strategies that mask the complexities of their characters. This panel seeks papers that look beyond the rhetoric to the nuances of imprisoned women in fiction and non-fiction, such as "The Yellow Wallpaper" and Anne Frank's diary, to Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl and prisoners' memoirs. Women's prison literature is the focus of the panel, and papers by women prisoners and their teachers will be welcomed enthusiastically, but papers on male prisoners are also invited.

This conference also seeks to examine Pre-Raphaelitism as a bridge between Romanticism and Aestheticism, and to engage with current critical work regarding its relationship to Modernism in literature.
