CALL FOR ARTICLES "Gender and/or Sexual Deviances in France at the End of
the Long Eighteenth Century"

I will be the editor of a new book on "Gender and/or Sexual Deviances in
France at the End of the Long Eighteenth Century", published by Cambridge
Scholars Publishing some time in 2009. I am seeking articles (5,000 -
10,000 words) dealing with what could have been perceived by the
hegemonic discourse as gender or sexual deviance at the end of the long
eighteenth century in France (approximately from the 1780’s to the
1815’s) . I am looking for articles that explore this particular topic
under a literary, cultural, aesthetic, historical, or socio-political
angle.

Call for Book Chapters

Proposed Title: Mapping Arab Women’s Movements

Editors: Dr. Nawar Al-Hassan Golley
          Dr. Pernille Arenfeldt

Over the past 100-150 years, women from across Arab countries (from Syria
in the North to Yemen in the South and Morocco in the West to Iraq in the

greater gender equality. The accomplishments are not consistent across the
Arab region and significant work remains to be done.
