[UPDATE] Deadline extended 5/15/09: Women's Resistance in Early Modern England

Sunday, April 19, 2009 - 8:49am
RSA 2010 Venice / Renaissance Society of America (April 8-10, 2009)

Early Modern England was a benchmark for literary and political activity by women, from Anne Askew's Examinations in the first half of the sixteenth century to Anna Trapnel's political prophecies in the final decades of the seventeenth. While the lengthy reign and potency of Elizabeth I (1558-1603) certainly set a precedent for early modern women's writing, texts by women played a significant political role well before and after her rule, and arguably found their apogee in the ideological fervor that surrounded the reigns of her Stuart successors. More importantly, women authors actively participated in the early modern public sphere at a time when magistrates and divines were striving to situate women within the realm of the household.

The Scrutiny of the Public Eye in the Work of William Faulkner

Saturday, April 18, 2009 - 6:57pm
Victoria Bryan

In keeping with SAMLA's theme for this year (Human Rights and the Humanities) this panel aims to examine the ways in which the scrutinizing view of the public eye impacts the construction of a character's identity in the work of William Faulkner. For example, in her book Race, Ethnicity and Sexuality (2003), Joane Nagel argues that race is a social construction rather than an inherent aspect of identity and writes that racial divisions are created in order to "form a barrier to hold some people in and keep others out, to define who is pure and who is impure, to shape our view of ourselves and others." How do racial divisions—or other socially constructed divisions, such as sexuality, nationality, ethnicity, etc.—impact relationships within a society?
