Taking up the 2015 SSAWW conference theme of "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," this panel will investigate work produced by women in the United States at the turn of the twentieth century for whom human interaction with the landscape was a central artistic concern. These women oriented themselves to the landscape through travel and exploration, desire and consumption, and through artistic representation reimagined the body, history, social-sexual formations, racial and gender categories, and sometimes humanness itself. Such reorienting encounters with landscape, meanwhile, formed part of late-nineteenth-century leisure class tourism and the romantic consumption of the natural world at a moment of expanded U.S. imperialism both at home and abroad.

Much research on motherhood has been published in the past eighteen years (e.g. Ruddick, 1995; O'Reilly, 2007; Kinser, 2008 & 2010; Klein & Chernick, 2011; Crittenden, 2010), suggesting an increased interest in and visibility and acknowledgement of feminism and the topic of motherhood. The literature is concerned with the invisibility of mothers and the labor of caregiving or "motherwork." Specifically, contemporary literature on motherhood is embedded in post-colonial and transnational scholarship in which motherhood scholars like Ruddick, Klein, and O'Reilly articulate "a new economy of collective caregiving and mutual exchange" (Klein, 2012). The works also reflect the changing structure of the family (e.g.
