Conference: 43rd Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Place: Rochester, NY
Date: March 15-18, 2012
Submission deadline for abstracts: September 30, 2011

Description: »This panel invites papers that study the representation of violence against women in literary texts. Papers may focus on: How are these acts represented in the text, as a taboo or as a ‘normal act’? Are these acts decried by the characters or accepted as ‘normal’ behavior? Do these acts affect the passions and sexuality of the characters?«
