CALL FOR PAPERS for the Women’s Network/Réseau des Femmes Panel
Annual Meeting of the Classical Association of Canada
May 8-10, 2012
The University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, CANADA
WOMEN AND THE RECEPTION OF THE CLASSICAL WORLD
The Women’s Network/Réseau des Femmes of the CAC/SCÉC invites submissions for this year’s panel themed “Women and the Reception of the Classical World”. We seek to explore women’s engagement with the Classics and are particularly interested in understanding how women artists, scholars and intellectuals of the modern era have constructed their vision(s) of the ancient world through the use of the visual arts, literature, popular culture, theatre and film, scholarship, education and pedagogy. Possible topics might include, but are not limited to: women (authors, artists, playwrights, etc.) and their works, intertextuality and the “female voice”, issues facing women who deal with classical topics and themes, and the role of women in shaping Classical Reception Studies.
This call for papers is meant to be suggestive rather than exclusive; papers are solicited on all areas exploring women and the reception of the Classical world. We hope to bring together contributors from a wide variety of disciplines, including English Literature, Art History, Fine Arts, Drama, Women and Gender Studies, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. We warmly welcome submissions from individuals outside of Canada and North America.
Please submit abstracts of 350-500 words (with relevant bibliography) by Friday, January 20th, 2012 directly to Prof. Kelly Olson (firstname.lastname@example.org) and indicate that the abstract is for the Women’s Network/Réseau des Femmes. Further enquiries can be directed to Prof. Judith Fletcher (email@example.com) or Dr. Lisa Trentin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
