This panel seeks to explore the various manifestations of literary “anxieties of influence” as understood by Harold Bloom, then feminist critics Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar. How do writers, poets, scholars, and critics reconcile their relationship with their forebears, if at all? How do race, gender, class or sexuality complicate or enhance a writer’s literary ancestry, fictive or actual? As a scholar, how are your literary relationships evident in your work? Please send abstracts of 250-300 words to Lisette Ordorica Lasater at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 5, 2010.
