The editors of the volume in progress, _Mary Astell: Gender, Reason,
Faith_, propose to move the study of Astell to a mature phase, and to

editors of the volume are soliciting essays not only on Astell's
already canonized works, but on the full range of her political,
theological, philosophical, and poetic writings. The volume, however,
will not eschew the more traditional scholarly interest in Astell's
concerns about gender; rather, it aspires to reveal how Astell's
reflections on gender were always mediated through her diverse set of
