CALL FOR PAPERS

Crossing Borders: Women and Communities of Letters, 1500-1700

We welcome submissions for a volume of essays that addresses issues
discussed in the two-part panel sessions called Crossing Borders: Learned
Women and Communities of Letters presented at the Sixteenth-Century Studies
Conference in 2005.

The goals of this volume are to examine ways in which women participated in
communities of letters, to explore how cultural, national, political, and/or
religious "borders" were crossed in such communities, and to consider ways
in which gender influenced the kinds of participation that occurred in such
communities.
