Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women's roles in society. This panel welcomes papers about any aspect of nineteenth-century feminism. Comparative approaches are welcome. By June 19, 2015, please submit a 250-300 word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Elena Shabliy, eshabliy@tulane.edu.
