CFP: Women In/And/On Books

CFP: Women In/And/On Books

Special session sponsored by the Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship
International Medieval Congress
Western Michigan University
13-16 May 2010

We invite papers considering the relationship of women to books
during any era or region in the Middle Ages. Possible papers might
consider ways in which women have participated in the production and
dissemination of books, whether as authors, scribes, patrons, or
owners. Alternatively, papers might consider commentaries on women
reading (both good and bad), the ways in which women are represented
in books, or how the culture of the book helped to shape women's
lived experience. We are particularly interested in developing an
inter- or multi-disciplinary session.

Please submit 1-page abstracts to the following (preferably by
e-mail) by 15 September 2009. Queries and letters of interest
