CFP: Daring Second Glances: Rereading the Rape Narrative

Conference: 48th Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
Place: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
Date: March 23-26, 2017
Submission deadline for abstracts: September 30, 2016
Description: »This panel is inspired by Mardorossian’s call for new theorizations of rape that do not rely on familiar masculine/feminine or agent/victim paradigms. We particularly seek rereadings of texts/characters that have already been heavily theorized (Persephone, Lucrece, Tess) in the hopes that this panel will serve as a breeding ground for important conversations in the developing field of sexual violence studies.«
