Many studies of the feminist canon have focused largely on either late eighteenth-century or mid to late nineteenth-century feminism. While worthwhile, this focus has drawn attention away from the contributions of those working between these two seminal periods. This panel seeks papers addressing the feminism of the early Victorian Era. What are its distinctive qualities? How was it influenced by eighteenth-century feminism? How did it affect forthcoming feminist thought? What writers, particularly those traditionally underappreciated, expressed feminist leanings in this relatively conservative period? Email 250-500 word abstracts by October 7,2007 to Kristin Le Veness: Kristin.LeVeness@ncc.edu.
