CALL FOR PAPERS

Crossing Borders: Women and Communities of Letters, 1500-1700

We welcome submissions for a volume of essays that addresses issues
discussed in the two-part panel sessions called Crossing Borders: Learned
Women and Communities of Letters presented at the Sixteenth-Century Studies
Conference in 2005.

The goals of this volume are to examine ways in which women participated in
communities of letters, to explore how cultural, national, political, and/or
religious "borders" were crossed in such communities, and to consider ways
in which gender influenced the kinds of participation that occurred in such
communities.

New due date:

            In an interview with Amnesty International , Chilean writer and activist Ariel Dorfman explains
            that, despite efforts to silence survivors of human rights violations, "Somehow the stories do come
            out, those voices do come out. I am not their voice: I make a space for those voices, a bridge."
            Dorfman's insights raise questions about the role of literature in the struggle for human rights.
             How do writers represent often unspeakable crimes against humanity and create a cultural memory that
            recognizes the forgotten or marginalized voices from the past? What does it mean to bear witness
            through literature?
