Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies is currently accepting submissions for a
special Summer 2006 issue on "The New Woman and Sexuality." The New Woman of
the fin de siecle challenged gender norms by pushing for greater career and
educational opportunities, by arguing for the necessity of marriage reform
and by frankly acknowledging women's sexuality. Some, like Sarah Grand, were
proponents of sexual purity while others like Victoria Cross repeatedly
pushed the boundaries. In this special issue we hope to spark discussion on
this fascinating aspect of New Woman literature that has not yet been fully
explored.

Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

In six or eight of her stories from the Vietnam War years, Kate Wilhelm made a name for herself as one
of the most aggressive critics of the culture of violence in the military-industrial state. But her work at
that time was hardly unique in her oeuvre; from as early as the 1950s, with the suicidal explosion that
ends her second published story, Wilhelm's fiction has been engaged in analyses of the violent mindset,

the personal effects of impersonal violence. The extent to which outward-directed violence is destined
