Teaching, Theorizing, Writing. Southern Connecticut State University, New
Haven, CT. April 19th, 2008. 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

This panel seeks scholarly papers that examine portraits of women within
late-eighteenth-century American and English novels, stories, letters,
narratives, poems or plays. Such writers as Jane Austen, Fanny Burney,
Maria Edgeworth, Hannah Webster Foster, Judith Sargent Murray, Susanna
Rowson, Royall Tyler and Mercy Otis Warren are among a number of authors

theoretical methodologies that explore the ways in which written texts
create effects of verisimilitude in the portraits of women.

Participants are asked to submit two pages. One page should be a cover
letter that includes a one-paragraph career biography. The second page
should include a concise abstract detailing the name of the panelist, the
title of the paper and a summary of the argument detailed in the paper.
