British Women Writers Conference Panel Proposal:
"Formal Curiosities."

Conference: March 31-April 3, 2011 at The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH

Paper proposals are invited for a panel-submission on 18th- and 19th-century British women poets and their experimentations with poetic form. How did women poets negotiate form as self-exploration and (how) was form gendered? Papers may examine a single work, the formal development of a single poet or the evolution of a form in the hands of several poets.

500-word abstracts due October 15, 2010; email to Prof. Noah Comet,

Please submit proposals in .doc format and attach a c.v.

Note that paper selections will be made very soon after the 10/15 deadline so that papers not accepted for this panel may still be submitted to the general BWWC call (deadline Nov. 1).
