From an early stage, the modern African novel has recognized the unjust challenges faced by African women. Even novels of the 1950's, such as Cyprian Ekwensi's People of the City (1954), bear witness to the difficulties that women face in transcending traditional norms as well as modern forms of objectification and exploitation. Even though these novels gesture to the need for better physical and societal realities for women, we may not find in the early novels a plan or vision of what exactly is needed for women to surmount various cultural hurdles and to fully actualize their potential in the modern realm.

From the popularity of superhero comics to cult movements around religious leaders, from venerating political figures to idolizing pop-culture celebrities, images and constructions of ‘heroes’ play a significant role in US culture. Simultaneously, there are people and actions outside of the limelight that have been revered as heroic, for example the voluntary work of nurses in homeless shelters and hospitals. While often tied to individuals, heroism occurs not just in these personified forms but can be attached to larger movements, events, or groups in more abstract ways as well. Both the figure of the hero and heroization more generally have equally frequently been weaponized throughout US history or used as a tool for political manipulation.

The panel "Abortion, Single Motherhood, and Adoption Schemes in Magdalene Literature" will take place at the 56th Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) organised from March 6 to March 9 in Philadelphia, PA. 

Magdalenism is a structure which was implemented from the mid-seventeenth century to the end of the twentieth century in about 60 European and Europeanised countries around the world. Its objective was to control and fashion femininity, women’s social behaviours, and their sexuality. At a time when abortion was illegal in most countries, Magdalene Laundries and Mother and Baby “Homes” were often seen as a “solution” for unmarried pregnant girls and women.
