CFP: Sexology in Pre-World War II British Literature

MLA Annual Convention, Los Angeles, January, 6-9, 2011.

"This special session being proposed for MLA 2011 held in Los Angeles seeks papers addressing the influence of British sexological writers—Havelock Ellis, Edward Carpenter, Marie Stopes, etc.—on the work of British and Irish writers from 1900-1940. Papers could address a literary author's entrance into "sexological" debates, over LGBT rights, reproductive freedoms, the functions of marriage, women’s sexual pleasure,etc., or could examine the role of the work/ style of a particular sexologist in British and Irish literature of the early twentieth century. We are also interested in papers that take into consideration the role of eugenics and "the British race" in scientific studies of sexuality, or address the peculiar interactions between sexology discourse and Irish Catholicism."
