CFP: Attending to Early Modern Women: Workshop Proposal Deadline (8/22/05; 11/9/06-11/11/06)

Karen Nelson

The deadline looms for interdisciplinary workshop proposals for
"Attending to Early Modern Women--and Men." We hope you are drafting a
proposal!

While the keynote address and plenary speakers will concentrate on what
scholars of early modern women can learn from considering men and
masculinity, workshops may consider masculinity or continue past
conversations about women and gender. Workshops should, however, focus
on one of the plenary topics themselves: theorizing gender, childhood,
violence, and pedagogies.

Proposals are due by AUGUST 22, 2005. The conference convenes in College
Park, MD, November 9-11, 2006.

Meditacions_ (1653).

The working title for this project is: _The Image of Her Mind: An Collins
and the Historical Imagination_.

volume's design:

Department of English at Karlstad University, Sweden, June 15-18, 2006.
