Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal

Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal (EMWJ) invites submissions to an interdisciplinary Forum on Early Modern Women and Memory, slated for publication in Volume 6 (2011). What is the relationship between women and memory? Are there gendered ways of remembering and forgetting the past? How were women's memories represented in early modern culture by men and by women? Which aspects of women's history have not been remembered? How did members of different religions, classes, and ethnicities shape both their own individual memories and also cultural memory? How does the gendered experience of their religious customs influence the relations of women and memory?
