Beyond Domesticity: Hemans in the Wider World, A Special Issue of _Women's Writing_

updated: 
Tuesday, November 27, 2012 - 1:39pm
Nanora Sweet, University of Missori-St Louis & Kate Singer, Mount Holyoke College

Felicia Hemans (1793-1835) was the sole British woman poet to rank alongside male Romantics in publishing and sales before and after her death. She positioned herself as a cosmopolitan writer in major forms on post-Napoleonic topics, later becoming a pioneer in Biedermeier poetics (of privatized, domestic sentiment). This later development has dominated her recovery in contemporary Romanticism, enabling a reconstruction of "domesticity" itself as a discourse. However, domesticity may be as much an artifact of her life and career as a framework for it.

Her Own Worst Enemy: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters (Submit by March 1st, 2013)

Dr. Monique Ferrell & Dr. Julian Williams - New York City College of Technology, City University of New York

The Editors of the new feminist theory book Her Own Worst Enemy: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters are looking for scholarly, creative non-fiction, fiction, and short stories that offer a unique perspective on women. Our previous CFP asked for essays that explored how women have served as the oppressive hand in the lives of their sisters. In addition to those essays, we are now looking for writing that examines women in the following contexts: female relationships; negative or positive perceptions of women; mothers and daughters; sisters; lesbian politics and relationships; perceptions of the female body; modern day feminism and womanism; female political and personal power; women in music and entertainment.
