Workshop on eighteenth-century women's writing and the novel genre
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Eighteenth-century women’s writing has attracted critical attention in recent years and the rise of the novel genre has faced reconsideration and re-evaluation accordingly. The fiction of women writers such as Eliza Haywood, Aphra Behn, Delariver Manley, and Penelope Aubin has undergone new editions and has come under critical focus to question their relationship to the canon and to theories of the novel. This workshop focuses on women writers alongside the canonical writers of the long eighteenth century and invites talks on various aspects of eighteenth-century novel. Talks on the intertextual relationships between canonical writers and non-canonical women writers and on theories of the novel are especially welcome.

Polylogues at the intersection(s) of decolonisation, conviviality and ‘critical diversity’ literacy: (Re-)imagining a ‘good life’

The Oxfam Inequality Report is a yearly reminder of the pervasiveness and depth of embedded injustices and inequalities in our daily lives. Colonial trajectories continue to shape contemporary tendencies to universalise the constitutive elements of a ‘good life’, encapsulated in global goals such as the SDGs. The resultant erasure denies other social and political imaginaries, other ways of knowing and understanding the world; as the Zapatista say, ‘a world of many worlds’, wherein we collectively create pluriversal spaces to flourish.
