Whip Me, B3at Me: The Representation of Vi0lence Against Women

This panel invites papers that study the representation of vi0lence against women in literary texts. Papers may focus on: How are these acts represented in the text, as a tab0o or as a ‘normal act’? Are these acts decried by the characters or accepted as ‘normal’ behavior? Do these acts affect the passi0ns and s3xuality of the characters? Please send 200-300 word abstracts and brief biographical statements to Victoria Ketz.
