The Olive Moore Collection
Deadline for submissions: October 15, 2007
British modernist Olive Moore published three novels and one journal in
the late 1920s and early 1930s through Charles Lahr's Red Lion Street
Bookstore and press. Her highly experimental texts, contentiously laden
with issues of gender, sexuality, maternity, nation, and geography, have
yet to receive critical attention. This collection seeks to explore her
work through multiple critical lenses in essays of 5 - 25 pages. Possible
topics may include:
Maternal monstrosities and the modernist project
The physical geography of Bloomsbury and Holborn
Gender and sexuality
Women, misogyny and misogynistic women
Gender and work
Queer modernisms
England and Europe
Olive Moore and Virginia Woolf
Olive Moore and Gertrude Stein
Olive Moore and D.H. Lawrence
The modernist text, experimentation and gender
Modernism and Catholicism
Modernism and Greek myth
The machinations of the modernist body
The working writing class
Women and fashion
