CFP: Early Modern Women Writers across Borders

After all the fun of the REALLY dead women writers meme thing, when I saw this, I thought, "hey, Bardiac, you should post that." So here goes.

Early Modern Women Writers across Borders

A session at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, 22-24 March 2007 in Miami, Florida

Early modern women writers are frequently examined in terms that are limited to their own countries. And yet, we might fruitfully comparewomen writers in different countries and look at how women writers themselves transcended national boundaries, by participating ininternational debates, translating texts, situating themselves inrelation to writers from abroad, and in numerous other ways. Proposals are invited for presentations on early modern women writersand their relationships to other European countries. What can be gained from looking at early modern women writers across borders? Proposals are requested on any theme provided the papers move beyond national boundaries in their examination of early modern women writers. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.

Please e-mail an abstract and a brief curriculum vitae to Martine vanElk at mvanelk@csulb.edu as soon as possible, but no later than May 12, 2006. This session will be sponsored by the Center for Medieval andRenaissance Studies at California State University, Long Beach.
