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?

"Like Water going back to itself": Gender, Place and Culture in 20th Century American Fiction
 
The gendering of space and the spatializing of identity are processes of much interest in contemporary culture study. This panel will examine women's representations of place and emplacement in American Women's Literature of the 20th century. From the closing of the frontier at the end of the 19th century to women's continued struggles to escape the domestic sphere at the end of the 20th, American conceptualizations of identity have always been preoccupied with space, fixity, and mobility.

Women Writing Nature: A Feminist View

Rachel Carson, writer, scientist, and ecologist, became famous as a naturalist and science writer for the public. Embedded in her early works was the view that human beings were but one part of nature distinguished primarily by their power to alter it, in some cases irreversibly. With the 1962 publication of Silent Spring, she challenged the practices of agricultural scientists and the government, and called for a change in the way humankind viewed the natural world.
