NEMLA 2015 Toronto "Steampunk Femininity: Recasting the Angel in the House" (9/30/2014)
Session ID: 15117
Session Format: Panel
Through consistent creation of powerful female heroines the likes of which we have never seen in Victorian literature, Steampunk has emerged as a strong feminist voice that addresses contemporary and current discourses on femininity simultaneously and rethinks our ideas of Victorian gender roles. This panel seeks to examine how Steampunk Young Adult and graphic novels subvert Victorian patriarchy and Empire by creating an alternate past that reimagines them both. Please submit 300-word abstract and bio.
Area: British, Women's and Gender Studies
Deadline for abstracts: Sept. 30, 2014
