CFP: Female Masculinity in Victorian Literature (dis)junctions: (grad)
(2/28/06; 4/7/06-4/8/06)

This call for papers is for a proposed panel to be held at “(dis)junctions:
Lost in Translation,” the University of California Riverside’s 13th Annual
Humanities Graduate Conference. It will take place April 7-8, 2006. For
more information, visit the website:

Judith Halberstam’s book “Female Masculinity” has helped open the discourse
on masculinity removed from the male body. However, some theorists fear
that this simply recapitulates female agency under a traditionally
exclusively male term. How is this true, or not true—especially within
Victorian literature? How is masculinity read in Victorian time? Does
“masculinities” exist, or is there only one type of masculinity represented
in Victorian novels? Papers on female masculinity in Victorian literature
are preferred, but work on alternative masculinities will also be given
consideration.

Abstracts no longer than 250 words should be e-mailed to:
“Plrand25_at_hotmail.com” by February 28, 2006. Please put the text in the
body
of the message, not as an attachment.
