This panel seeks papers that explore the multifaceted inter-relationship between female characters and the city from the fin de siècle to World War II. Although the panel's primary focus will be on British, Irish, and North American texts, I would also be interested in papers that extend this discussion to other areas of the globe. Please send a 300-word abstract and brief bio to Elizabeth Foley O'Connor (lizfoley@gmail.com).
