UPDATE: Contemporary Lesbian Literature (1/15/06; SSAWW, 11/8/06-11/11/06)
A previous call for participants in a roundtable discussion of Contemporary Lesbian Fiction has been broadened in scope to include poetry & drama. The revised call is below.
Presenters sought for proposed session at the Society for the Study of American Women Writers conference to be held in Philadelphia, Nov. 8-11, 2006.
This session will focus on major issues, themes, and trends in post-lesbian-feminist fiction, poetry, & drama by American lesbian writers. The format for the session has yet to be determined -- a roundtable discussion or workshop format is preferable, but a more traditional panel of three or four 15-20 minute papers is also possible (please state your preference with the proposal). Topics including comparisons of multiple authors, discussion of mainstream publishing and/or small lesbian presses, and works by lesbians of color or working-class lesbians are especially welcome. Please send ideas by January 15, 2006 to Kris Comment at k.comment_at_att.net
