A panel or panels on multiculturalism and representations of race and ethnic
identity is being constructed for the Wilson College conference on Nancy Drew
and Girl Sleuths. The goal of the panel is to examine representations of race
and ethnic identity in girl sleuth literature, both past and present; since
most characters in girl sleuth stories are generally white, this panel is
concerned about how other races and ethnic identities are depicted and
represented in contrast to the whiteness that seems to inform the majority of
the characters in these texts.

To submit an abstract, send it to the address listed for the conference below.

CFP for Panel on Doris Lessing and Canon Formation for the Second
International Doris Lessing Conference, Leeds Metropolitan University,
U.K, to be held July 6-8, 2007.

Proposed Panel: "Putting the 'Woman of Letters' in Her Place: Canon
Formation and the Lessing Canon"

In the past 30 years, the canon of "great literature" has expanded,
shifted, and changed. No longer primarily a list of privileged, white,
male authors, the canon as we know it in the 21st century includes
writers who represent a range of identity categories. Spaces have been
carved out for women, gay, lesbian, working-class, postcolonial, and
multicultural writers.

Bacon, Fulke Greville, Robert Sidney, or studies touching on
lesser-known English intellectuals like Henry Cuffe, Henry Savile, and
Matthew Gwinne.
