Many modernist women writers, re-discovered after extensive recovery work undertaken in the past 20 years, have again fallen out of print. This roundtable addresses the question of what should come next for feminist scholars given the difficulty of keeping this work in print. Is recovery work still worthwhile? Or is it increasingly immaterial, replaced by interest in transnational writers or interdisciplinary inquiry? And what are some alternative avenues for scholarly inquiry for the writers that remain in the canon? Lastly, how does feminist work in modernist studies affect the scholarly work in other periods?

Please send 250-500 word abstracts that address the future of women's literature by September 30 to lauren.rosenblum@gmail.com.

The NeMLA conference will be held in Montreal, April 7-11 2010.
