Female editors and their important roles shaping modernist texts are often overlooked by scholars. This panel presentation seeks to recover several important female editors of little magazines, books, fliers, zines, etc in the U.S. and abroad. Papers discussing minority women are especially welcome, as are papers discussing female editors who were also artists, poets, writers, etc. Because of the important recovery aspect of this panel presentation, it is hoped that presenters will provide conference attendees with supplementary materials, in the form of handouts or PowerPoint presentations, to situate these foundational female editors for the audience.

From the devastation of the Athenian polis during the Peloponnesian war to the decline of the Greek world in the era of the Stoics, from the enclosures of the commons under the Tudors to the religious wars of the reformation and counter-reformation, and from the decline of the ancien régime to the upheavals of revolution and class struggle in the 19th century, "Utopia" is a name that has always been linked to crisis: as a reformist or revolutionary response to antagonisms and contradictions in the social, political and economic order, as a means of contemplating and urging a world to come during a period of transition and uncertainty.

The mixed formal properties of certain texts across the history of philosophy and literature resist any attempt at their easy classification within either of these traditional generic categories. Such philosophical-literary hybrid texts seem to deny the adequacy of either strictly philosophical or literary form for expressing a particular content or inducing some affective or intellectual experience. This panel seeks to explore questions raised by the philosophical-literary hybrid text, in all its historical and geographical variation. What is the relationship between the hybrid form of some philosophical-literary text and its content? What are the stakes of philosophical-literary hybridity for some author?

Updating our earlier CFP, we've extended the deadline out of consideration for those beset by end-of-semester stress. Deadline is now June 1. Here's the full updated CFP:

Novels, says Samuel Johnson in an essay in the Rambler, "are written chiefly to the young, the ignorant, the idle, to whom they serve as lectures of conduct, and instructions into life." Nineteenth-century novels shouldered that didactic mission with particular force and authority. To what extent do they still exert that authority over us today?
