CfP: Early Modern Women’s Mobilities

Tuesday, July 10, 2018   (0 Comments)

Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal Volume 14.1 (Fall 2019) will feature a forum on “Early Modern Women’s Mobilities”

The scholarship on early modern women has moved far beyond the long-held notion that women remained in the home. Indeed, mobility was a defining feature of many women’s lives. For this forum, we are interested not only in examples of women’s mobility, but also research that interrogates the far-reaching implications of that mobility for women and considers how it informs our understanding of gender in the early modern world. We seek essays that examine but are not limited to:

  • Migration and settlement (actual and imagined, internal and external)
  • Travel (actual and imagined, local and global, voluntary and involuntary)
  • Gendered understandings of distance and space
  • Movement and the body
  • Modes of transportation
  • Intersectionality and mobility

Please send abstracts of 500 words to the editors (emwj@umw.edu) by September 30, 2018. Completed essays of 3500 words will be due on January 30, 2019.
