Eighteenth-Century Studies, hosted by Salem State College, Salem,
Massachusetts, Nov 9-12, 2006:

                Gender and Crime in 18c Popular Culture

Papers sought that examine the ways gender figured in popular
representations of the causes, effects, and progress of criminality
through the 18c. Especially desirable are papers that revisit the
work of Frances Dolan, Garthine Walker, or Margaret Arnot, and/or
that engage with Robert Shoemaker's argument, at the October 2005
conference on Gender and Popular Culture at University of Michigan,
for the significance of London's "female crime wave" of
1690-1730. Proposals by April 15 to Jennifer Thorn, Colby College.
