different contexts. We encourage the consideration of all types of environments, including the
musical, literary, religious, political, psychological, natural, built, social, and transnational,
and those which merge or transcend these types.

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Early Modern Women Writers Across Borders

A session at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America,
22-24 March 2007 in Miami, Florida

Early modern women writers are frequently examined in terms that are
limited to their own countries. And yet, we might fruitfully compare
women writers in different countries and look at how women writers
themselves transcended national boundaries, by participating in
international debates, translating texts, situating themselves in
relation to writers from abroad, and in numerous other ways.
