Many studies of the feminist canon have focused largely on either late
eighteenth-century or mid to late nineteenth-century feminism. While
worthwhile, this focus has drawn attention away from the contributions of
those working between these two seminal periods. This panel seeks papers
addressing the feminism of the early Victorian Era. What are its
distinctive qualities? How was it influenced by eighteenth-century
feminism? How did it affect forthcoming feminist thought? What writers,
particularly those traditionally underappreciated, expressed feminist
leanings in this relatively conservative period? Email 250-500 word
