SAMLA 2015– Call for Papers

The Edith Wharton Society

Writing (of) Women’s Bodies: Wharton and Early Twentieth-Century Feminism

In keeping with the SAMLA theme, “In Concert: Literature and other Arts,” this panel seeks papers which consider Edith Wharton’s work in the context of the growing voice of feminism of her time. In this panel, we are interested in papers which explore the connections between Wharton’s treatment of female bodies and the context of early twentieth century feminism. We encourage a broad interpretation of this theme, including (but not limited to) the role of sexuality in her work, to her work as a war correspondent, to even the material realities of her characters’ lives. By June 15, 2015, please submit a 250-300 word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Monica Miller, monica.miller@lmc.gatech.edu.
