Masculinity in Women’s Literature

(An edited collection of scholarly essays)

 

In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennett can never match the resourcefulness of his wife in her attempts to settle their five daughters in life; Edgar Linton in Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights is a caricature of manliness; in Elizabeth Gaskell’s Wives and Daughters, an only daughter, Molly Gibson, proves to be a better child to her father than a son, Osborne Hamley, who fails his parents; George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss presents Maggie Tulliver as a far stronger, braver and tougher character than her brother Tom.

Monday, May 15, 2017

Penny Dreadful (2014-2016) has become one of the most critical well-regarded shows of the post-millennial Gothic television revival, drawing explicitly on classic tropes, texts and characters throughout its three-season run. However, despite the show’s critical success and cult following, a substantive academic examination of the show has yet to be undertaken.

In keeping with this year’s MMLA Convention theme, “Art and Activism,” I welcome papers that address social/political activism in nineteenth-century British literature and culture. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to: writers as social critics; the Victorian social problem novel; radical lyric and narrative representations; Aesthetes, Decadents, and the idea of “Art for Art’s sake”; and humanists, humanitarians, and social activists in life and fiction.

Please send a 250-word abstract and a brief bio. by April 5th, 2017 to Bailey Shaw at bshaw@siu.edu.
