Women and Gender in the Early Modern World
Over the past forty years, the study of women and gender has become foundational for understanding the early modern period. By challenging, revising, and expanding scholarly discourse about the lives, power, prerogatives, and challenges of women across class and geographical boundaries, the field has broadened our understanding of art, literature, science, politics, music, families, sexuality, and other quotidian experiences from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Series editors Allyson Poska and Abby Zanger are committed to expanding the field in new and innovative ways. They welcome proposals for both single-author and edited collections that fall within and outside the traditional disciplines of literature, history, music, art history, and the history of science, as well as works engaging sexuality studies, masculinity studies, and other interdisciplinary fields that study the nature of gender and women in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa.
