CFP: Women, Representation, and Space in 19th and 20th C. Lit. (2/1/05; collection)
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.
-- Women walking or appropriating the city.
If you are working on any of these topics, and will be able to write a
200 word abstract by February 1, 2005, please contact:
