“The Art and Surprise of Dickens’s Female Characters”
This panel invites abstracts for papers exploring Charles Dickens’s ability to create memorable, endearing, unusual, and even radical female characters. Do they follow specified patterns? Do his depictions of these women undergo an artistic evolution? Does Dickens deviate from societal expectations and realities? Papers are invited to examine the traditional, non-traditional, expected and unexpected constructions of womanhood found in Dickens’s works. Please send 250-300 word abstract by September 30, 2014.
This year, NeMLA is switching to a user-based system to accept and track abstract submissions. In order to submit an abstract using the button for a CFP entry, you must sign up with NeMLA and log in. Using this new system, you can manage your personal information and review and update your abstract following submission.
