"Intersections of Eco-feminist Criticism and Place Theory in Female-Authored Texts of the Long Eighteenth Century"

American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, San Antonio,
March 22-25, 2012.

This panel seeks to explore the connections between science, place, and literature in female authored texts of the long eighteenth century. In particular, this panel seeks papers that address texts other than novels – periodicals, dramas, and/or poetry. Papers might consider such questions as: What intersections appear between scientific and female-authored texts? How are familiar texts reimagined from an eco-feminist standpoint? What are the significances of authorial place/location in female-authored texts? The preference is for papers to address issues of an interdisciplinary nature or from an interdisciplinary frame.
