In many modern and contemporary narrative acts of psychological and physical violence among women, violence has been interpreted and presented in terms of Freudian envy, spaces for male pleasure, negotiating conflicts in a male world, biological determinism (the over protective mother), or as non-existent, i.e. created by males (women are peacemakers and nurturers, neither inherently violent nor evil) etc.

We are looking for one paper that addresses the topic of Renaissance
girls for a proposed panel at the 2006 Renaissance Society of America
Conference. Proposals are welcome from all disciplines and need not be

The panel aims to bring together the emerging field of Girls Studies with
the burgeoning scholary interest in Renaissance childhood. What was the
place of female children in Renaissance culture and society? How were
they represented in literature, drama, and art? And how did girlhood
compare to boyhood?

Call for Paper Proposals for Proposed Panel "Gender, Sexuality and Time in
Renaissance England" at the Renaissance Society of America's 2006 meeting in
San Francisco
Recently, feminist and queer theorists have attempted to reconsider the
politics of time. Most of these critical interventions, however, have been based
in 19th and 20th-century understandings of time. This panel will consider
intersections of gender, sexuality and time in 16th and 17th-century England
in an effort to add an early modern perspective to some of these discussions.
Papers on particular texts, authors and genres, as well as broader
explorations of temporal and historical thinking and practices are all welcome.

same-sex associations and representations under the
shelter of, or in tension with, other allegiances: to
marriage, to patron, to genre, to nation, or to
politics, to name only a few possibilities.
