What does the French literature, art and culture of the years 1890-1920 tell us about the blooming young girls ? Follow-up of a 2011 MLA special session on the decadent "fatal virgins" of the end of the XIXth century, this panel will be dedicated to the still rather unknown "jeunes-filles" in any kind of text, media and form.

Send your one page abstracts and CV/bio to Virginie Pouzet-Duzer by March 14 2013.

PLEASE NOTE: This CFP is for a proposed, not a guaranteed, session, meaning it is contingent on approval by the MLA Program Committee (which will make its decisions after April 1). All prospective presenters must be current MLA members by no later than 7 April 2012.
