CALL FOR PAPERS for the CAC Women's Network/Réseau des Femmes Panel
Classical Association of Canada, Annual Meeting, May 12-14, 2009 in
Vancouver (University of British Columbia).


The theme for this year's Women's Network/Réseau des Femmes Panel at
the CAC is "Generations of Women". This panel explores the
construction and representation of women as mothers, daughters,
sisters and grandmothers and intergenerational connections with the
body, the family and society more broadly, as well as the legacy of
women scholars in the discipline of Classics. Suggested topics
include, but are not limited to: functional and dysfunctional familial
relationships (including both public and private contexts); women and
reproduction (within medical texts, religious rituals and demography);
women in foundation myths; feminist pedagogy; contributions of 19th
and 20th century female classical scholars. This call for papers is
meant to be suggestive rather than exclusive; we welcome papers that
consider the theme from a variety of perspectives and sources of
evidence (textual, visual, and material).
