Call for papers---The Contested Space of Arab Spring (NeMLA 2018)
Deadline for submission: September 30, 2017
Northeast Modern Language Association: University of Pittsburg, PA, April 12-15, 2018
Chair: Joan Listernick
Protesting against corruption and dictatorship in favor of democracy, men and women poured onto the streets during the brief, but historically critical period of the Arab Spring. This potential watershed has produced a literary tide reflecting on its significance, a tide itself waiting to be explored. This panel will examine how contemporary literature has viewed the emancipatory possibility of the Arab Spring-- as a moment of historic exceptionalism or a slumbering ember.
Masculinity in Women’s Literature
In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennett can never match the resourcefulness of his wife in her attempts to settle their five daughters in life; Edgar Linton in Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights is a caricature of manliness; in Elizabeth Gaskell’s Wives and Daughters, an only daughter, Molly Gibson, proves to be a better child to her father than a son, Osborne Hamley, who fails his parents; George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss presents Maggie Tulliver as a far stronger, braver and tougher character than her brother Tom.
