Call for Papers Archive

We are seeking proposals for papers to be included in a panel on “Race, Gender, and the Streets” that will focus on the presence of women—and their reception--within public urban spaces in modernist literature, art and film. Papers might address issues of the female flaneur (the flaneuse), performativity, spectacle, fashion, safety and crime, harassment, racial violence or segregation in relation to activities on sidewalks, in parks, streetcars, stores, theaters, apartments or tenements and other public buildings. We welcome explorations of the topic through perspectives belonging to a variety of disciplines including architectural history, urban planning, crowd studies, race theory, visual studies, literary studies, queer theory and others.
Please send abstracts of 300 words and a one-paragraph bio by March 1st to or
