In response to the conference theme of “Border Crossings:Translation, Migration, & Gender in the Americas, the Transatlantic, & the Transpacific,” we welcome papers that consider how women writers respond to the ideological and imaginative boundaries that have shaped western American literary and cultural production. Proposed papers might address but are not limited to the following topics:
- gender, genre, and the West
- negotiations of racial, ethnic, and religious difference in western women’s writing
- women writers and the geographic and chronological definitions of the West
- archival and recovery work in the field of western women’s writing
- women writers and the post-western West
