CFP:Women Writing 1550-1750 (Revisited)

by Jessica C. Murphy

In 1999 scholars from Australia, New Zealand, and further afield gathered together in Melbourne for a two day conference devoted to writing by early modern women. This new conference offers a chance to reassess the field almost a decade later, and to mull over and celebrate the significant and growing body of scholarship devoted to early modern women’s writing.

Proposals are invited for a 20 minute paper, a panel, or a round table discussion. We welcome contributions from all fields of study, and papers or round table proposals from postgraduate students are particularly welcome. The conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia, at the city campus of La Trobe University, on Saturday and Sunday, 26-27 January, 2008.

Please send proposals by 17 November to Paul Salzman, English Program, La Trobe University, Australia, 3086; email:
