Portraits of Women in Late-Eighteenth-Century Literature: The American New
Republic and Regency England

Call for Papers: This panel seeks scholarly papers of 6-8 pages that look
at portraits of women in late-eighteenth-century texts. Such authors as
Jane Austen, Fanny Burney, Maria Edgeworth in England and Hannah Webster
Foster, Judith Sargent Murray and Mercy Otis Warren in America signify a
notable interest in the public depiction of women in private spaces. This
panel seeks to examine the quality of verisimilitude in signatory passages
that utilize language as a medium of portraiture.

Deadline for submission: March 15th, 2008
