Closing the conference

This conference will constitute the 3rd Milestone of the international COST Action IS 0901 “Women Writers In History: Toward a New Understanding of European Literary Culture”. It is being organized by the Institute of Slavic Studies and the Interdisciplinary Center for Gender and Identity Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Pozna?.

The “TRANS” categories are essential ones within the COST Action “Women Writers In History”. They provide in particular a critique of binary oppositions, and take into account the mobility, migration, cross-referencing, nomadism, which characterize women’s writing – more than that of men. Adopting this “TRANS” perspective may be a step towards a new historiography of women’s authorship, allowing approaches other than the chronological, and helping us to understand the complexity of women’s contribution to literature – a complexity resulting from the overlapping of, and contradictions between norms and images regarding women’s behaviour and actual women’s own desires and activities.

This perspective will be adopted in this conference. In order to have the full benefit of the different “TRANS” categories for discussion of the real impact of European female authors, the organizers have invited the speakers to apply these categories to their data, and to test them against their own research questions.

Data and analytical commentary on “TRANS” dimensions lend themselves particularly well to visualization, which is the COST-WWIH Action’s current focus. For this reason contributors have been invited to include reflections on “maps, graphs, trees”, as ways of enhancing understanding.
