The legacies of both Marxism and poststructuralism have loomed large in literary studies in recent years. The ongoing publication of the late seminars of both Foucault and Derrida, as well as the long awaited translation of Althusser’s On The Reproduction Of Capitalism suggests a sustained interest in such methodologies, while what has been called the “descriptive turn”—which encompasses practices as disparate and ill-defined as Latourian Actor-Network Theory, Morettian “distant reading”, and Heather Love’s revival of “thin description”—has attempted to caution scholars away from symptomatic reading, ideology critique, and broadly “deconstructive” critical practice.
William Morris’s long and productive career offers multiple entry points for the study of Victorian radicalism: literature and radical politics; the relations among art, art history, and protest; utopianism; and medievalism as a counter-hegemonic discourse. Papers need not confine themselves to Morris. This panel, sponsored by the William Morris Society of the United States, welcomes papers that address topics associated with Morris, including sexuality, gender, poetry, and publishing, using a variety of theoretical approaches.

Legacies of Victorian Women’s Fiction: Looking Beyond the 'Neo'
“Daring Second Glances: Rereading the Rape Narrative” elicits new perspectives on well-known texts that depict sexual violence. This panel seeks to curate a trans-historical discussion about new ways to approach representations of sexual violence. In her book Framing the Rape Victim, Carine Mardorossian argues that postmodern feminists of the 1990s ironically placed the onus of rape deterrence back on women when they “began locating the source of women’s sexual oppression in the representational and rhetorical codes of feminism rather than in societal norms” (42).
NeMLA( Northeast Modern Language Association) 48th Annual Convention March 23-26 in Baltimore, Maryland, Session title: 'Reader, I married him!': Investigating 19th-century Readers and Reading the 19th Century As Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre reminds us with her exclamation, “Reader, I married him!,” writers of fiction in the nineteenth century were very aware of their readership with texts. In the increasingly literate century, readers were savvy consumers, rapt fans, and scathing critics. They read penny papers, novels, and genre specific magazines. They read at home, in libraries, and on trains.
