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.

Proposals are invited for presentations on early modern women writers
and their relationships to other European countries. What can be gained
from looking at early modern women writers across borders?

Proposals are requested on any theme provided the papers move beyond
national boundaries in their examination of early modern women writers.
Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.

Please e-mail an abstract and a brief curriculum vitae to Martine van
Elk at as soon as possible, but no later than May 12,

This session will be sponsored by the Center for Medieval and
Renaissance Studies at California State University, Long Beach
