Call for Chapters: Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle

updated: 
Monday, March 20, 2017 - 1:29pm
Cambridge Scholars Publishing
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 1, 2017

The second half of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of the global women’s movement. Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women’s roles in society. This edited volume Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle (under contract with Cambridge Scholars Publishing) welcomes contributions on any aspect of nineteenth-century literary feminism. Comparative approaches are welcome. By April 1, please submit a 250-300 word abstract and your CV to Dr.
