University of Washington, Seattle

In an effort to promote scholarly discourse in all disciplines and fields, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference at the University of Washington, Seattle invites graduate students to submit papers addressing notions of adaptation, a concept Dudley Andrew calls, "potentially as far reaching as you like" (Andrew, Concepts in Film Theory, 1984). The appearance of two journals dedicated to adaptation studies in the past two years along with the proliferation of theoretical texts on the subject testify to the ever-increasing reach of the topic.

Women as the Fourth Estate in Medieval Literature

Wednesday, December 9, 2009 - 10:38am
The Connecticut Review

Shulamith Shahar, in her book The Fourth Estate, describes women as outside the masculine triptych of people who work, fight, and pray. CT Review is looking for academic papers on the works of Langland, Chaucer, and/or Kempe that explore the idea that women are the fourth estate. What roles are assigned to them, and how do they cope with or rebel against these standards imposed upon them in a highly patriarchal society? What changes may have occurred in society as a result?
