Call for Submissions to Pedagogical Project on Early Modern Women's
Writings

We are inviting instructors and graduate students to participate in the
creation of a pedagogical packet, consisting of title pages,
frontispieces, prefaces, engravings, letters, etc., for use in
undergraduate or graduate courses on or dealing with early modern women
writers.  This packet would provide students with an opportunity to view
the history of the female-authored text by giving them access to
facsimiles of manuscript pages and of title pages, frontispieces, etc.
taken from original editions.

We propose to organize the packet by creating three main sections
representing the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries.  Within each section,
we would organize the materials accordingly: book covers/title pages,
frontispieces, prefaces/prologues, pages of text (from poems, plays,
prose works, pamphlets, and manuscripts), engravings, epilogues,
conclusions, postscripts.

Please send us photocopies of text pages which can eventually be
computer-scanned; and include a brief commentary of 300-500 words, in
which you annotate the image or text by identifying its source (provide
all bibliographic information), explaining its significance, and listing
relevant secondary criticism.

Accuracy of the commentaries will be checked with an informal peer
review by participants in the project.

The packet will include an introduction and will be submitted for
publication. It will be made available to all participants and any one
interested in receiving a copy.  We would also like to have overheads
made of all the images for use in the classroom.

Please send your materials by September 1999 to Helen Ostovich, Dept. of
English, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario L8S 4K1 or to Elizabeth
Sauer, Dept. of English, Brock University, St. Catharines, ON L2S 3A1.

Comments on this project proposal are invited and encouraged: send to
