CFP: Women, Representation, and Space in Contemporary Literature (7/15/05; collection)

full name / name of organization: 
contact email: 

I am seeking submissions to complete a volume on women, representation
and space in 19th and 20th century literature written in English. While
the main focus of the volume is women's metaphorical appropriation and
subvertion of public and private spaces since the beginning of the 19th
century until today, this call for papers in particular seeks essays on
contemporary women writers appropriating, negotiating and/or
deconstructing public/private spaces. I am especially interested in
essays that question the simplistic binary divide between public and
private spaces, and essays dealing with the trope of the flâneuse in the
postmodern city. Proposals on little explored authors such as Tama
Janowitzs (The Slaves of New York) would be very welcome.

Please, send electronically a two-page abstract and a Bio by July 15,
