Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period:

This is a call for papers for a book-length collection of essays that brings
into dialogue male and female voices on the question of gender and religion
in the literature, visual arts, religious writings, and culture of the late
medieval and early modern period. We are interested in treatments of
authors who directly or indirectly engage one another in debate, but we are
also interested in bringing into dialogue by their juxtaposition in this
collection male and female voices of authors who may not necessarily have
known of each other's work but who nonetheless seem to "speak" to one
another.

UPDATE: Vladimir Nabokov (8/15/05; 20th C. Lit., 2/23/06-2/25/06)

If you are interested in submitting a paper for the Nabokov panels, they
are still welcome. The open panel's parameters have been changed slightly
since the CFP was first announced.

iconography, is already full but I am keen to receive abstracts for a second
session on the intersections between sanctity and anchoritic enclosure.

The title of the session will be 'Anchoritism and Sanctity, Anchorites and
Sainthood' and I would like to receive abstracts for 20-minute papers by
September 1st. Please send abstracts electronically to
