Proposal Submission: Please send a 350-500 word proposal, including a proposed title to: Annette Sisson, Belmont University, annette.sisson@belmont.edu OR, if you prefer to send it through the post, Wheeler Humanities Bldg. 200, Dept. of English, Belmont University, 1900 Belmont Blvd., Nashville, TN 37212-3757

Submission Deadline: June 20, 2012

Topic Description: Proposals might address historical writers or contemporary writers of any nationality. The writers do not necessarily have to be female—though women writers are welcome—but the writers under discussion must represent (a) female voice(s)/character(s)/figure(s). Direct attention to how the manner of the writing, rhetorically, relates to the matter at hand (emigration, immigration, empire, and/or exile), as well as to the imagined/intended audience, is of particular interest.
