UPDATE: [General] Collection: Domestic Violence in the Long 18th Century

**DEADLINE EXTENDED**CFP: [Collections] Domestic Violence in the Long
Eighteenth Century

I continue to seek submissions for an edited collection of essays
treating domestic violence in the long eighteenth century. Before there
was a category called "domestic violence," there were behaviors, ways of
speaking, issues of control, legal categories, economic conditions, and
occupational relationships that bordered on violence. The essays I seek
will consider early ways of representing, thinking and talking about what
will later be called domestic violence. I am especially interested in
essays that treat non-Western cultures, and/or medical, legal, or
religious ways of considering this topic.

Please send a 500-word abstract or completed ms. email preferred, to
broomej1_at_wpunj.edu by 15 March 2009.
