Supporting Women Writers: Coteries as Feminist Praxis (Roundtable at ASECS Annual Conference, March 31-April 2, 2022, Baltimore, MD)

Eliza Haywood represents The Female Spectator as part of a coterie that acts as “several Members of one Body, of which [she is] the mouth.” Through this writing club, Haywood encapsulates the important role that such coteries played in circulating women’s writing in the long eighteenth century. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu circulated her travel writing for feedback in a letter-book within a close circle of friends and family members. This correspondence between women represented an opportunity to share work in a safe space. Co-writing groups remain a safe space and an essential resource for women to share work today.

In November 1621 colonists in Massachusetts celebrated a year of survival and their first harvest  with a feast that has since been called The First Thanksgiving. The feast was a supposed  celebration of resilience after hardship. It was not until 1863, in the midst of the American Civil  War and with the nation divided, that this feast was enshrined as a national holiday and a  touchstone of American tradition and ideology: a story of togetherness projected over the  realities of division, exceptionalism, genocide, and slavery.

Abstracts for 15-17 min. papers sought for NeMLA 2022 on the topic of "Dirty London." Even before industrialization, London was a dirty city. The Victorians brought the Sanitary Acts, which improved health conditions, but my use of the word "dirty" applies to not just those aspects of sanitation, but also treatment of sexuality in, for instance, My Secret Life, and other publications explored so well by Steven Marcus in The Other Victorians. The "Sanitary Aesthetic" is obvious in works by such authors as Wilkie Collins, George Gissing, Charles Dickens, and Elizabeth Gaskell.

The Carson McCullers Society invites proposals for presentations related to technology as imagined through the works and influence of Carson McCullers. From Miss Amelia experimenting with medical tinctures in The Ballad of the Sad Cafe to Frankie’s father working with watches in The Member of the Wedding, many of McCullers’ characters engage with technology overtly. However, in the spirit of the SSSL 2022 Conference theme, we also encourage potential panelists to think of technology in broad and creative ways.

Anarchism’s engagement with the question of gender is at once ambiguous and contradictory. Historically, the anarchist response to the “woman/sex question” was mixed. During the period of ‘classical anarchism’ (1840-1939), women took on active roles in anarchist movements – they were active in anarchist organizations, publications, and projects across the globe. They took part in uprisings, rebellions, and revolutions, as well as in the work of day-to-day anarchist organizing, propaganda, and more. While many (though not all) rejected the label of feminist, they nonetheless spoke out against sexual subordination and called for the emancipation of women with the overthrow of all forms of social, political, and economic hierarchy.

The College English Association’s 52nd national conference, from March 31-April 2, 2022, will focus on the theme of justice, and will be held in Birmingham, Alabama, where the freedom ensured by civil rights has been contested by the government in both the past and present. Birmingham’s notoriety as a focal point of the Civil Rights Movement, including the Birmingham Campaign, the imprisonment of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the writing of his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” is matched by the city’s renown for forging steel, founding Veteran’s Day, and hosting the USA’s second-oldest drag queen pageant.

Throughout history, patriarchy has created a woman myth to define women’s sexual and gender identity, confining them into motherhood, madness, or monstrous images to devalue their role in society.

The Promises of Care and Saudi Women’s Invisibility

Thursday, September 30, 2021

Saudi women have always been perceived distinctly in both Arab and global communities. It’s not a secret that Saudi women have occupied the focus of international interest for a long time. Although this interest may come across as “care,” leading political global forces hide behind the promises of “caring” about women’s rights to achieve political gains. In the latter sense, this concept is manipulated and misused. The misuse of “care” has led to Saudi women’s “hypervisibility” as oppressed, powerless, inferior, and unheard while their true power is still invisible. Evidently, to communicate their unique perception of “care,” Saudi women have utilized different tools ranging from publishing traditional genres to posting on social media.
