Submissions are invited for a collection of essays on women's literary
culture in 19th and 20th century literature. This book will pay specific attention
to the various ways in which women writers "speak" by confronting, connecting,
embracing, challenging, and defining identities of womanhood. Special
considerations include, but are not limited to: domesticity, mothering, sexuality,
representations of historical women, women of color, displaced women,
mythological and/or ideological representations of womanhood, communities of women
writers, the literary marketplace.

updated: 
Monday, February 27, 2006 - 5:19pm
Camille Martin

Raphael Rubinstein says "appropriative writing." Michael Davidson says "palimtexts." Gregory Betts says "plunderverse." Purists say "plagiarism." This panel of the AWP will feature poets whose writing incorporates source texts as a compositional process and perhaps also with the intention of challenging the idea of textual ownership. Poets in this panel will discuss methods of appropriation in their own work and suggest theoretical issues underlying their use of source texts. Please send abstracts (300-500 words) and a brief biographical statement by email to Camille Martin: <c8martin_at_ryerson.ca>. Deadline: April 15, 2006. The 2007 AWP will be in Atlanta, February 28 - March 3.
