CFP: The Heroic Age special issue (2018): “New Feminist Voices in the Heroic Age”

Guest Editors: Melissa Ridley Elmes (Lindenwood University) and Mary Kate Hurley (Ohio University)

The Heroic Age, a digital peer-reviewed scholarly journal, seeks submissions for a special issue on “New Feminist Voices in the Heroic Age” which will run from 1 January 2018 through 31 December 2018.

We are interested in submissions from graduate students, postdoctoral, and junior or early-stage scholars (pre-tenure or equivalent NTT faculty experience) working in any discipline with a focus on Northwestern Europe in the period covered by the journal, c. 300-1200 CE.; we are also eager to consider comparative approaches that examine a Northwestern European topic in context with another geographical area. We welcome articles of 7,000 words (inclusive of bibliography and endnotes) and essays of 3,000 words. Submissions do not necessarily have to focus on feminist issues, although they should demonstrate a feminist approach (women’s studies, gender/ queer studies, & etc.) to the question(s) being addressed.

Submission guidelines and style requirements for The Heroic Age can be found here: http://www.heroicage.org/authors.php.

The Heroic Age operates on a rolling submissions basis, and we are now accepting submissions for this special issue. Queries are welcome if you are unsure as to whether your project is suitable for this issue, and queries, article, and essay submissions should be sent to the guest editors: MElmes@lindenwood.edu and hurleym1@ohio.edu
