CFP: English IV: Romantic and Victorian Literature (3/1/06; SAMLA, 11/10/06-11/12/06)

updated: 
Tuesday, February 7, 2006 - 7:16pm
Lee Anna Maynard

The English IV section (Romantic and Victorian Literature) at SAMLA
seeks papers on "The Child-Woman in Romantic and
Victorian Literature."

In texts from the late eighteenth through the late nineteenth
centuries, women are often given characteristics simultaneously
childlike and sexualized. Poems, novels, conduct books, and visual
arts of the Romantic and Victorian periods accept, foster, and
sometimes interrogate this conflation of the unripe and forbidden
with the sexually desirable. We welcome proposals analyzing the
interplay of these aesthetic and cultural values in Romantic and
Victorian literature.
