CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue:

Readers, Writers, Salonnières: Female Networks in Europe, 1700-1900

The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries saw an explosion of interest in
Europe in foreign languages and literatures, and recent research has begun
to explore the part played by women in cross-cultural interchange. To what
extent were women writers from different countries aware of each other and
each other’s work? This special issue of Women’s Writing seeks to examine
the trans-national links between literary women in Europe in the period
1700-1900.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

• Women as readers of foreign women’s writing

• Women translating/adapting foreign women’s writing

• Women’s literary responses to foreign women’s writing

• Trans-national links between female letter-writers, travellers,
salonnières

Papers of 5,000-6,000 words should be sent by 15 September 2008 to the
Guest Editors: Dr Katherine Astbury, University of Warwick
(Katherine.Astbury@warwick.ac.uk), Dr Gillian Dow, University of
Southampton (G.Dow@soton.ac.uk) and Dr Hilary Brown, Swansea University
(h.j.brown@swan.ac.uk)
