Poster presentation for the 2011 University Scholars Day at the University of North Texas discussing research on portrayals of abortion in mid-twentieth century literature.
Abstract: Abortion has long been a controversial subject, a war with no end in sight. Both sides have been tirelessly argued with rigid, unchangeable opinions. It is a matter that lacks open-mindedness, a possible reason for the continuing conflict. The discussion of abortion in literature is especially one-sided, with anti-choice opinions often being reflected. Because of this imbalance, it is important to have accurate portrayals of abortion in order to truly understand its nature. Through a close reading of novels set in the mid-20th century, a time when abortion was not spoken of without consequence, the issue of abortion will be explored in order to shed some light on its nature.
