[UPDATE] Special Session on Women & Work in Literature – October 19-21, PAMLA, Seattle University | cfp.english.upenn.edu
by Jessica C. Murphy
Call for proposals: Special Session on “Women and Work,” Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association annual conference, Seattle University, October 19-21, 2012.
How do writers represent the work of being women—where “work” is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose?
Please submit proposals, including a title and 50 word abstract, directly via the PAMLA website at: http://www.pamla.org/2012. If you have questions, please email session chair Susanne Weil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for proposals is April 22, 2012.
