By whom, and by what means, was this designed?
The whispered incantation which allows
Free passage to the phantoms of the mind?
                                        . . .
By the delicate, invisible web you wove —
The inexplicable mystery of sound.

 

               — From T. S. Eliot, ‘To Walter de la Mare’

Women and Work

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

The meaning of “women’s work” has never been stable. While women consistently have engaged with both the production of home and labor outside the home, their involvement in what Marx conceptualizes as wage-to-labor power exchange did not achieve heightened visibility in U.S. cultures until the nineteenth century. This panel seeks to address the many ways that women writers explore women’s labor in service to their families, their communities, and their nations, and how this labor contributes to the work of resistance and/or recovery across the Americas. How does women’s labor provide opportunities for collective dissent as well as recovery of women’s work?
