Submissions are invited for a collection of essays on women's literary
culture in 19th and 20th century literature. This book will pay specific attention
to the various ways in which women writers "speak" by confronting, connecting,
embracing, challenging, and defining identities of womanhood. Special
considerations include, but are not limited to: domesticity, mothering, sexuality,
representations of historical women, women of color, displaced women,
mythological and/or ideological representations of womanhood, communities of women
writers, the literary marketplace.

Each chapter will be approximately 6,000 words in length. Please email
inquiries, papers or proposals of 250-500 words and a brief vita by 15 April to:
