Women and Work in Literature

Presiding Officer: 
Susanne Weil, Centralia College, Washington
Christine Mower, Seattle University

How do writers represent the work of being women - “work” defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity?  Possible foci include how race, class, sexuality, or national identity affect women’s ability both to define and perform their work.
