Papers sought for a panel at the annual meeting of the Northeast
American Society for 18c Studies in Salem, MA, Nov 9-12, 2006 that
will examine the ways gender figured in popular representations of
the causes, effects, and progress of criminality through the

Frances Dolan, Garthine Walker, or Margaret Arnot, and/or that engage

significance of London's "female crime wave" of 1690-1730. Proposals
