Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period:

This is a call for papers for a book-length collection of essays that brings
into dialogue male and female voices on the question of gender and religion
in the literature, visual arts, religious writings, and culture of the late
medieval and early modern period. We are interested in treatments of
authors who directly or indirectly engage one another in debate, but we are
also interested in bringing into dialogue by their juxtaposition in this
collection male and female voices of authors who may not necessarily have
known of each other's work but who nonetheless seem to "speak" to one
another.
