NOTE to Readers: Beginning with issue n3, HOW2 will devote an on-going section to conferences focused on modernist and contemporary innovative texts/scholarship, where works by women are given serious attention. We are interested in publishing both full versions -- or excerpts -- of papers & talks, as well as critical responses/ discussions initiated by issues explored at a particular conference. You are invited to send contributions and suggestions to: kfraser@sfsu.edu
