The editors of Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies welcome submissions for the
Spring 2006 issue of this peer-reviewed, online journal.

Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies is committed to publishing insightful and
innovative scholarship on gender studies and nineteenth-century British
literature, art and culture. The journal is a collaborative effort that
brings together advanced graduate students and scholars from a variety of
universities to create a unique voice in the field. We endorse a broad
definition of gender studies and welcome submissions that consider gender
and sexuality in conjunction with race, class, place and nationality.

CFP: Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies: The New Woman (6/1/06; journal issue)

updated:

Melissa Purdue

Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies is currently accepting submissions for a
special Summer 2006 issue on "The New Woman and Sexuality." The New Woman of
the fin de siecle challenged gender norms by pushing for greater career and
educational opportunities, by arguing for the necessity of marriage reform
and by frankly acknowledging women's sexuality. Some, like Sarah Grand, were
proponents of sexual purity while others like Victoria Cross repeatedly
pushed the boundaries. In this special issue we hope to spark discussion on
this fascinating aspect of New Woman literature that has not yet been fully
explored.

Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

as well as reexaminations of his own status as a popular poet,
suggest that sustained attention to Darwin can further enrich our
understandings of the relation between poetry and science. Papers
exploring any aspect of these issues in Darwin's works will be
considered. Possible topics may include: Darwin and Evolutionary
Thought; Poetics of Zoology and/or Botany; Darwin and the Lives of
