How can further research on women on "the wrong side of history" and their literary contributions, material traces, and political work, (broadly defined) contribute to our understanding of literary and cultural sites ranging from the long eighteenth century through the present day?

English Graduate Conference at University of Toronto

Best friends forever; been that way forever; nothing lasts forever; forever young. 'Forever' is ubiquitous in our cultural imagination. It finds its way into statements of intimacy and commitment, as well as statements of loss; it seems applicable both to the spiritual and the mundane; likewise to the very long and the ephemeral. 'Forever' comes up in discourses of religion, in manuscript and book history, and in medieval and early modern conceptions of time.
