CFP: Becket and the Dread of Woman (1/30/07; IASIL, 7/16/07-7/20/07) "birth was the death of him: Beckett and the Dread of Woman". Proposals are sought for a special panel at the annual conference of the International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures (IASIL) in Dublin (July 16th-20th 2007), on the topic of Beckett and the Dread of Woman. The aim of the panel is to examine the problematic status of women in Beckett, and to explain how this feeds into the broader concerns of his work, especially his abhorrence of reproduction, fecundity/fertility. Three papers of 20 minutes will be selected for presentation. Please e-mail proposals by January 30th to Sean Kennedy, St Mary's University, Halifax, Nova Scotia at sean.kennedy_at_smu.ca.
