Women’s and Gender Studies / Creative Writing, Editing and Publishing: We study processes of creating voices of the past to analyze and to juxtapose.
The session invites papers implementing a study of language to focus on metaphorical grammatical constructions, unique and specific with form and function. We interpret works to capture the essence of style as well as rhetorical function of basic structure of grammar, diction and syntax, in a literary work as message and meaning. We discuss useful pedagogical as well as theoretical processes of the literary scholar about the power of writing for cultural change. Sketches, or persona monologues, fiction as well as non-fiction are welcome.
