Special Issue Call for Papers: WOMEN’S WRITING (Winter 2017)
Papers may focus on generation as a biological, cultural, social, historical, or political process as well as on attendant manifestations in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature and contemporary scholarly discourses. Explorations should illuminate shifts in literary studies, women’s writing, and/or critical practice.
Topics may included but are not limited to: mentoring relationships, conflicts across the generations, literary periodization, models of literary production, theories of regeneration, reproduction and maternity, feminist prehistories, and the future of women’s writing.
We invite essays of 4,000-7,000 words in length (including notes) for the Winter 2017 issue.
Please submit abstracts of 200 words to the editors, Doreen Thierauf and Lauren Pinkerton (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) at firstname.lastname@example.org, by August 1, 2016.
Complete essays will be due February 1, 2017. Please prepare contributions according to MLA style (8th edition) and in accordance with the journal’s author guidelines and style sheet (to be accessed on this page: http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/authors/style/layout/style_rwow.pdf).
