7-10 April
New Brunswick, NJ, Hosted by Rutger's University

Taking Natalie Clifford Barney's "Academy of Women" as an example of what Tirza Latimer characterizes as "women converging in Paris between the wars to establish the terms of on-going debates about representation, sexuality, and the politics of gender," this panel will explore works written by women in Barney's circle AND works written within the broader context of transnational women's writing in twentieth-century Paris. Please send 200-300 word abstracts to Chelsea Ray @ by 14 October.
