Subject:    EMWJ CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS! Sex and the Early Modern Woman

The deadline for contributions is fast approaching!

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Forum III: Sex and the Early Modern Woman

/Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal/ (/EMWJ/) invites 
submissions to an interdisciplinary Forum on /Sex and the Early Modern 
Woman/, slated for publication in Volume V (2010). We encourage 
contributors to the forum to explore the intersection of sex and early 
modern women and girls from different socioeconomic levels and from 
regions across the globe.

How did Early Modern women view their own sexuality and that of others?

How did moralists view women's sexuality?

How did women resist and subvert the dominant ideology of sexuality?

Which spaces were associated with sex?

What can we learn about the sexualities of wives, nuns, single women, 
adulteresses, witches, virgins, prostitutes, and lesbians?

We invite submissions of about 1200 words that address these issues, and 
especially welcome innovative approaches. Analyses in all disciplines 
are welcome, but those that cross disciplines and national borders are 
especially welcome.

The deadline for forum submissions is *September 22, 2009.*

*Early Modern is defined as the period 1400-1700.
