Submissions are invited for a proposed panel for the Eighteenth
Annual British Women Writers Conference, April 8-11, 2010, in College
Station, TX. With the conference's theme of "Journeys," this panel will
examine the voyages Fashion made in the nineteenth century to and
through the British Empire, and how the Empire abroad was worn at home
in England. Of particular concern to this panel is how
nineteenth-century British women writers understood, critiqued, and
explored the imperial origins of fashion and dress, and how this
emphasizes awareness of the political implications of seemingly
domestic and feminine matters.
