The deadline has been extended for Society for the Study of American Women
Writers Panel: Dirty Linen in Public: Race, Religion and Laundry in
Nineteenth-Century America.

This panel will explore the ways in which the lens of "laundry" refracts
literary and cultural practices into their component discourses. An
analysis of laundry and its associated motifs (whiteness, washing,
cleansing) not only foregrounds certain gendered and raced labor
practices, but also draws together diverse discourses such as religious
fundamentalism, psychoanalysis, and materialist accounts of labor history.
