Gender and Crime in 18c Popular Culture
Papers sought for NEASECS 2006 (which meets in Salem MA, Nov 9-12)
that examine the ways gender figured in popular representations of
the causes, effects, and progress of criminality through the
18c. Especially desirable are papers that revisit the work of
Frances Dolan, Garthine Walker, or Margaret Arnot, and/or that engage
with Robert Shoemaker's argument, at the October 2005 conference on
Gender and Popular Culture at University of Michigan, for the
significance of London's "female crime wave" of 1690-1730. Proposals
by April 15 to Jennifer Thorn, Colby College. Email: jjthorn_at_colby.edu.
