This roundtable will explore the relationship between space and place and the ways French heritage women rethink place as a potential for personal and social creation, for transformation and connection. Some themes to consider: how is the virtual site of the page a place where narrator and reader connect? How do old memories and new geographical place interact and connect? How do urban environment, nature, gender, sexuality or class affect the reconfiguring of place? Please send 300w abstracts to Carole Salmon (Carole_Salmon@uml.edu)and Anna Rocca (arocca@salemstate.edu) by SEPTEMBER 30, 2013.
