Edited Collection, Women Writing Trauma in Literature
I'm seeking abstracts of 250 words due March 7, 2021 for an edited collection under contract with an academic publisher entitled "Women Writing Trauma in Literature." The book considers literary representations of trauma by women writers. Rather than focusing on one time period or nationality, this collection considers a global range of women’s experiences with or depictions of traumatic encounters in literature. In particular, this book examines the relationship between trauma, identity, and literary form. Send abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notification of accepted essays by April 1, 2021. Completed chapters (4000-6000 words) due by July 2021.
