Nineteenth Century Literature and the Cultural Moment
 

Graduate Student Literature Conference

at the University of South Carolina, Columbia

 
March 31-April 1, 2006
 

 

Whether discussing the Industrial Revolution, the Woman Question, or other forms of political turmoil, many nineteenth-century writers condensed larger issues of the day into specific literary events -- or moments -- that both reflected and defined the historical and cultural climate of the time.

Cambridge Scholars Press has contacted me and would like me to submit a book proposal on my proposed Society for the Study of American Women Writers panel titled "Popular Nineteenth-Century Women Writers and the Literary Marketplace." Though I can only accept four papers for the conference, I need about twelve to fifteen papers for the book. I would like to get the book proposal out before the end of this year; therefore, please note the deadline listed below. The focus of the book will be on the American marketplace and how women writers dealt with their editors ("gentlemen publishers"). In other words, how did the woman writer's relationship with the publisher influence or change her work?
