Eudora Welty and Women's Studies
We are seeking proposals for a special double issue of the journal Women’s Studies; An Interdisciplinary Journal on the work of Eudora Welty in the context of women's studies/feminism. Contending with a writer famous for declaring that she did not need to “crusade” and hesitant about the label “feminist,” scholars in the past have examined in helpful ways how Welty’s work undertakes the task of exploring gender. However, given new conversations in the fields of intertextuality, materialist studies, ecofeminism, and gender studies, further conversation or even a reappraisal is certainly due. Proposals/abstracts due September 1, 2022. Full paper submissions due March 1, 2023.
