Northeast Modern Language Association 2014 Convention (April 3-6)
At the turn of the twentieth century, American journalism opened up new opportunities for women to establish professional identities as writers and social advocates. This panel invites papers addressing how female reporters used journalism to heighten readers’ awareness of, and civic involvement in, crucial issues facing America at the turn of the twentieth century. In what various ways did female reporters promote civic literacy? How did women journalists construct a persuasive ethos capable of spurring social change? What audiences did they move to action, and through what rhetorical strategies? Send 300-500 word abstracts and brief bio to Grace Wetzel, St. Joseph’s University, email@example.com by September 15, 2013.
