While more texts by and about women appear on core text syllabi than ever, integrating women into core curricula continues to present special challenges and opportunities. The Intellectual Heritage Program at Temple University, in partnership with the Association of Core Texts and Courses and Temple's Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program, welcomes proposals for papers addressing the variety of ways in which women figure in the core. These include, but are not limited to: texts by women authors or about women characters; challenges and successes in integrating women’s voices in core curricula; questions concerning the canon and the archive; the dynamics of gender identity in the classroom; critical developments in feminism and gender studies; and intersectionality.

Please submit your 250-word abstract on the Intellectual Heritage website: http://www.cla.temple.edu/ih/WomenCFP.html

****Deadline extended: Now Oct. 27, by midnight.
