Call For Papers: Authorizing Early Modern Women: From Biography To Biofiction

15 Jun 2019

Invitation for ESSAY PROPOSALS/ABSTRACTS

Authorizing Early Modern Women: From Biography To Biofiction is a new volume of essays that aims to chart intersections among history, biography, and the growing field of biofiction, or contemporary fictionalizations of historical figures, in this case of early modern women.

Edited by James Fitzmaurice, Naomi J. Miller, and Sara Jayne Steen, the volume will include essays on women artists, conceived broadly, across examples of painting, poetry, playwriting, prose, and tapestry. 

We’re particularly interested in essays that consider recent biographies and/or fictionalizations (novels, stage plays, films) about such early modern women as Sofonisba Anguissola and Artemisia Gentileschi, Judith Leyster and Mary Beale, Elizabeth Cary and Aphra Behn.

To be considered for inclusion, please send a 250- to 500-word proposal/abstract and a 1-page CV summary by August 30, 2019 to James Fitzmaurice (j.fitzmaurice49@gmail.com), Naomi Miller (njmiller@smith.edu), and Sara Jayne Steen (sjsteen300@gmail.com). Completed essays will be due by July 2020.
