Women Authors in the Middle Ages (panel)

THE 2008 WOMEN IN FRENCH CONFERENCE
April 10-12, 2008

In medieval France, the word "author" referred primarily to Latin auctores.
It was therefore considerably more difficult for vernacular writers to be
considered "authors," and even more so for women writers. However, women
such as Marie de France and Christine de Pizan effectively established
themselves as medieval authors. This session will explore the relationship
between gender, authorship, and authority in the Middle Ages (we also
welcome submissions about Early Modern women writers).

Please send abstracts (in French or English) by September 20, 2007 to
