Feminism(s) 2006: Feminisms and Literature Postgraduate Seminar.
Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK, Saturday 11th November 2006.

    A seminar for postgraduates studying literature and feminism to present and discuss their research. The day is primarily concerned with examining the relationship between feminism and literature, the implications of labels such as 'feminist' or 'women's writing', and the impact of feminist literary criticism and politics upon literature today. It is the discussion of these themes across the different topics which is important – the day is devised as a discussion of similar concerns across literature. We would also like to encourage students working with poets, dramatists as well as fiction writers.

42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI USA
May 10-13, 2007

Special session: "Reading the Breast: Medieval Writers and Artists."

This session focuses on secular materials, since so much work has already
been done with the breast in religious writing and art. Papers dealing
with one or more texts, visual or written as well as non-fictional secular
records, are welcome.

Presentations examining Medieval women "reading women's breast(s)" are
particularly sought; however, the session also open to papers focused on
secular texts with male or anonymous attribution.

The Literary History of Sexuality (panel)

This panel addresses the relationship between sexuality and literature in the long eighteenth
century. Critics and
historians, from a variety of perspectives, have suggested that "something happened" to
conceptualizations (and
practices) of the sexual and the literary in and around the eighteenth century--although what
that "something"
was remains an open question. Accordingly, this panel will explore the mutually shaping
relations between
sexuality and literature, from Restoration to Romanticism. Engagements with Foucault
(critical and/or
sympathetic) are welcome but not essential.

"Elusive faces of the feminine. Writing and photography, face to face"

3-5 May 2007

This conference is about the relationship between photography and
writing, and the places where they meet, dialogue, cross and flee
each other. In this relationship between the photographic and the
literary, we are interested in the importance of the female face, an
alterity that neither medium can capture.

Papers may examine representations of queer life in mainstream popular culture as long as the papers focus on the depiction of queer community.

How might we envisage gender utopias/dystopias in the later 21st century? How has technological/scientific research opposed or contributed to the existence of gendered power structures? Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

new holistic paradigm that includes and values the actions/experiences and
ideas of both men and women. We ask: How do we do gender history? What would
it look like? Do we have specific examples of doing gender history?
