Myth, Femininity, and Violence: Appropriations of Ancient Myths in Twentieth
Century and
Contemporary Women's Aesthetic Production

Sanja Bahun-Radunovi?, Ph.D., and V.G. Julie Rajan, Ph.D., eds.

The editors invite papers for an innovative collection of essays that
explores aesthetic reflections on violence through the refiguration of
ancient myths by twentieth century and contemporary female artists. The
essays may address a variety of aesthetic female productions, including
literature, performance, and visual art. The scope of the collection is
global, and we are looking for pieces representing a wide range of cultures,
languages, geographic spaces, and social contexts.

Please forward a 1-page abstract and short bio by November 1, 2006, to

Decisions will be made in December 2006, and first drafts will be due in
