Lynda L. Hinkle

MP feminist peer-reviewed biannual e-journal is seeking papers on the
subject of "CHOICE". The word choice has been used as a galvanizing point
concerning abortion, but the concept of the right to choose extends well
beyond the womb. Feminists argue over the kinds of choices we make...the
choice to be a stay at home mother or have a consuming career, the choice to
 marry or not to marry, the choice to be celibate or to be sexually
promiscuous, the choice to agree or disagree with feminist "party lines",
etc. We are seeking academic papers, personal narratives, creative writing,
or journalistic writings that wrestle with the idea of gender and choice in

CFP: Women's Autobiography (9/15/05; NEMLA, 3/2/06-3/5/06)

"Women's Autobiography: Private Memories, Public Voices." Panel for Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA), Philadelphia, March 2-5, 2006.

This panel will examine critical questions about women's autobiographical writing, a topic which has generated wide interest over the past three decades. Looking at women's writing in this genre from historical and theoretical perspectives complicates the issues raised in discussions of autobiographical writing and identifies the use of strategies such as imitation, masquerade, subversion, and disruption of conventions. Papers may focus on different types of autobiographical writing by women in different historical time periods and cultures.

CFP: Attending to Early Modern Women: Workshop Proposal Deadline (8/22/05; 11/9/06-11/11/06)

Karen Nelson

The deadline looms for interdisciplinary workshop proposals for
"Attending to Early Modern Women--and Men." We hope you are drafting a
proposal!

While the keynote address and plenary speakers will concentrate on what
scholars of early modern women can learn from considering men and
masculinity, workshops may consider masculinity or continue past
conversations about women and gender. Workshops should, however, focus
on one of the plenary topics themselves: theorizing gender, childhood,
violence, and pedagogies.

Proposals are due by AUGUST 22, 2005. The conference convenes in College
Park, MD, November 9-11, 2006.

American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
37th Annual Meeting
Montreal, Quebec, March 30-April 2, 2006

Session Title: "Sex, Secularism and Enlightenment"

In <Formations of the Secular>, Talal Asad has described secularism as a
political ideology that took shape in the nineteenth century, based on the
concept of "the secular" that coalesced in early modernity and the
eighteenth century. What role did sex and gender play in this
conceptualization of the secular, in religious and non-religious texts and
identities? What are the sexualized components of a secular identity or
subjectivity? How do they impact the transformation of religious
identities in the period?

Cambridge Scholars Press has contacted me and would like me to submit a book proposal on my proposed Society for the Study of American Women Writers panel titled "Popular Nineteenth-Century Women Writers and the Literary Marketplace." Though I can only accept four papers for the conference, I need about twelve to fifteen papers for the book. I would like to get the book proposal out before the end of this year; therefore, please note the deadline listed below. The focus of the book will be on the American marketplace and how women writers dealt with their editors ("gentlemen publishers"). In other words, how did the woman writer's relationship with the publisher influence or change her work?
