Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
April 10-13, 2008
This roundtable explores gendered representations of healers (physicians, nurses, midwives, non-Western healers, etc.) and patients in narrative (literature, popular culture, memoir, visual art). Topics include but are not limited to: gendered healing “styles,” the intersection of gender and medicine with race, class, disability, religion, or nation, “reverse” gender stereotypes, the gendering of particular medical professions or particular medical conditions, gender and medicine in children’s literature. We welcome papers from a variety of disciplines, historical periods, and theoretical perspectives.
Send 1-page abstracts and CVs to Angela Laflen (Angela.Laflen@marist.edu) and Marcelline Block (mblock@Princeton.edu) by September 15, 2007.
