The Female Painter in Women's Fiction, 1880-1930

updated: 
Thursday, August 16, 2012 - 8:17am
Dr. Elizabeth McCormick

This panel seeks to explore fictional representations of female painters over a 50-year period (1880-1930). While art history presents us with an epic catalogue of women geniuses over these decades, ranging from Mary Cassatt to Georgia O'Keefe, less frequently do we see their counterparts in era literature. When one emerges, palette in hand, she is far more likely to be indulging a hobby or working a trade (a la Chopin's Edna Pontillier or Hardy's Sue Bridehead, respectively).

Writing Gender: When Science Meets Fiction, NeMLA, Boston, March 21-24, 2013

Angela Monsam, Fordham University

This panel will explore the intersection of scientific and literary discourses in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain and its impact on the formation of contemporary constructions of gender. I am especially interested in papers that examine the various ways in which writers of this period engaged with and, at times, adopted scientific rhetoric to comment on or challenge existing gender norms. Please send paper proposal and brief cv to Angela Monsam monsam@fordham.edu

Gaskell Project 2015: Place, Progress, and Personhood (Abstract deadline 31 October 2012)

Emily Morris/Saskatchewan, Sarina Gruver Moore/Calvin College, Lesa Scholl/Emmanuel College, UQ

In anticipation of the 150th anniversary of Gaskell's death, we are seeking abstracts for an edited volume on the subject of Place, Progress, and Personhood in the Works of Elizabeth Gaskell. The nineteenth century saw dramatic changes in the landscape of Britain as industry and technology reshaped the geographical space. The advent of the railway and the increasing predominance of manufactory machinery reoriented the nation's physical and social countenance. But alongside the excitement of progress and industry, there was also a sense of fear and loss manifested through an idealisation of the country home, the pastoral retreat, and the agricultural South.

Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies

Battleground States Conference

Bowling Green State University Presents the 8th Annual Battleground States Conference
Title: Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies
February 22nd – 24th 2013

Culture is mercurial and fluid. Thus research must create, but also dispute yet engage, a transformational and reflective understanding of our subjects. The examination of knowledge and epistemologies from varying perspectives reveals the interconnections of vastly varying subjects. But to find these connections we first need to explore and experiment.
