VanDette presents research at American Literature Association conference

Dr. Emily VanDette

English professor Emily E. VanDette presented her research paper, “Fuller Objectification: From Phenomenally Homely to Sexy Muse,” at the annual conference of the American Literature Association held in Boston in May.

Dr. VanDette's presentation focused on 21st century representations of one of the first feminist public intellectuals, Margaret Fuller, a 19th century journalist, essayist, philosopher and political activist. She presented her paper as a part of a scholarly panel sponsored by the Margaret Fuller Society. This research is a part of VanDette’s new project, "Six Scribbling Women and the Making of American Literary History," which traces the legacies of a group of American women writers from the 19th century.

VanDette developed this project throughout the summer with support from a Faculty Summer Research and Creativity Award.
