Outlaws in Literature, History, and Culture examines the nature, function, and context of the outlaw and the outlawed - people, spaces, practices - in the pre-modern world, and in its modern representations. By its nature, outlawry reflects not only the outlawed, but the forces of law which seek to define and to contain it. Throughout the centuries, a wide and ever-changing, and yet ever familiar, variety of outlaw characters and narratives have captured the imagination of audiences both particular and general, local and global.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman and the Novel
Panel Organizer: Peter Betjemann, Oregon State University

In 1899, Charlotte Perkins Gilman declared that her writing wouldn't "stop to be bothered with characters." Disavowing the "careful analysis and disentangling of individual" peculiarities, Gilman asserted that her work would instead draw out social, economic, and racial types. "Characters in mass" would center a fiction that she conceived, first and foremost, as sociological.
