    While 18th and 19th century women were usually confined to the domestic
and national spheres some women indulged their dreams and travelled to
unexplored territories: their journeys to the Orient (Lady Montagu, Lady
Blunt, Gertrude Bell, Amelia Edwards, Freya Stark), to India (Emily Eden,
Fanny Parks), to America (Isabella Bird, Clara Bromley, France Trollope), to
Africa (Mary Kingsley) or to Australia (Daisy Bates) gave rise to
narratives.

CFP: Neurology and Literature at the Fin de Siècle (6/17/05; collection)

Submissions are invited for a collection of critical essays on
intersections between British, European, and North American literature

Phillip Mallett, University of St Andrews, Jane Thomas, University of Hull,
and Angelique Richardson, University of Exeter, are co-organizing a
postgraduate symposium which will form part of the international Thomas
Hardy Conference, 22-29 July 2006, Dorchester. We are keen to involve
young and new scholars in the Conference, which is the 17th biennial
Hardy conference, and it would be immensely useful to the Hardy Society
to have a general idea as to the number of postgraduates in the UK and US
currently working on Hardy (or whose research includes Hardy), and
whether they would be likely to come to the conference (would there, for
example, be any financial support from your institution). So if you are

Submissions are invited for a collection of essays on women,
representation and space in 19th and 20th century literature. While the
main focus of the volume is women's metaphorical appropriation of public
and private spaces since the beginning of the 19th century until today,
the book will also pay particular attention to the way women writers
have interrogated and deconstructed the binary divide between public and
private space. Some possible topics include:

-- Public role of domestic settings, and their implications for women.

-- Literary configurations of interstitial or liminal spaces where the
separation between private and public sphere is suspended.
