CFP: Representing Women's Medico-Literary Texts in the Long Eighteenth Century

Annual NEASECS Meeting, Buffalo, October 21-23, 2010.

"Over the past several decades, critics have explored how literature and medical texts represented and often objectified women during the long eighteenth century. In addition to examining representations of women, their bodies, and "female" illnesses – both in medical and literary texts -- this panel also considers how women responded or "wrote back" to such objectification. We are especially interested in papers that explore the various ways in which women directly adopt, negotiate, or manipulate discourses of medicine, whether about their own bodies or the bodies of others."
Submission deadline for abstracts: May 15, 2010.
