CALL FOR PAPERS: ASECS (Atlanta 22-25 March 2007; abstracts due 30
January 2007)

Due to the withdrawal of a panelist, a replacement participant is needed for:

"Gender and the Irish Eighteenth Century"

Many of the most fruitful recent interventions in studies of the Irish
eighteenth century have concerned gender and sexuality. This panel will
consider the construction of masculinity, femininity, and the analogous
relationship of biological and cultural reproduction in Eighteenth Century
Ireland. Papers are solicited that examine women writers, the construction
of gender by male writers, the gendering of literary labour and the
public/private spheres, colonialism, marriage, and biological/literary
paternity. All projects on this theme, however, will be entertained.

Please submit abstracts to Sean Moore, Assistant Professor of English at
UNH, at, by 30 January.
