WORKING WOMEN SUFFRAGETTES' LIFE WRITING IN BRITAIN AND AMERICA

updated: 
Monday, May 7, 2018 - 9:07am
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

While there has been interest in the suffrage movement in both America and England for many years now, one area that has not received as much scholarly attention is the analysis of Life Writing created by those within the movement. Both working- and middle-class women provide an intimate portrait of what it was like to fight for suffrage for so many years.  I propose a panel that examines the connections between suffragettes of different classes, ages, and nationalities as well as those in positions of power who supported them throughout. By May 30, please submit a 300-word abstract, brief biographical statement, and any AV requirements to Sarah N. MacDonald, University of Indianapolis, at smacdon8@kent.edu.

Session Title – Performing Empathy:  When Literary Texts Are Acts of Kindness

This session seeks papers on the empathic potentials of literature, broadly defined.  The subtext here is the social division in post-2016 America, where sympathy fatigue—a feeling of resentment arising from the belief that one has been asked to extend one’s sympathy to women, minorities, the poor, and others beyond what one feels is reasonable—is often cited as one reason for the intransigence.  The larger question we will ask ourselves is the following:  how can literature act as a vehicle of empathic connection and reinforce people’s capacity for compassion toward the marginalized other?
