Members of the National Women’s Studies Association Early Modern Women Interest Group seek paper proposals for a panel on “Early Modern Nasty Women: Shrews, Scolds, and Whores” for the NWSA annual conference in Baltimore, Maryland, Nov 16-19 2017.
The Early Modern Women Interest group aims to propose a sponsored panel under the conference subtheme of “engaging, questioning, and transcending the state.”
We seek papers that address:
Canonical early modern women writers’ support of state power
Early modern representations of disruptive, unruly, or innovative women
