Devout Laywomen in the Early Modern World

Focusing specifically on semi-religious women, this volume addresses a number of provocative questions about gender and religion in the early modern world.

Maternity and Romance Narratives in Early Modern England
Edited by Karen Bamford, Mount Allison University, Canada and Naomi J. Miller, Smith College, USA

Maternity and Romance Narratives in Early Modern England

Though recent scholarship has focused on both maternity and romance literature in early modern England, this is the first full length scholarly volume to address the notable intersections between the two topics. Scrutinizing romance narratives in various forms, the collection explores motherhood as it was figured in the fantasy world of romance by authors ranging from Edmund Spenser to Margaret Cavendish.

Rethinking Gaspara Stampa in the Canon of Renaissance Poetry
Edited by Unn Falkeid, Stockholm University, Sweden and Aileen A. Feng, University of Arizona, USA

Rethinking Gaspara Stampa in the Canon of Renaissance Poetry

Despite the status of Gaspara Stampa (1523?–1554) as one of the greatest and most creative poets and musicians of the Italian Renaissance, scholarship on Stampa has been surprisingly scarce and unsystematic. In this volume, scholars from various disciplines employ contrasting methodologies to explore different aspects of Stampa’s work. The volume presents a rich introduction to, and interdisciplinary investigation of, Stampa’s impact on Renaissance ...

Men and Women Making Friends in Early Modern France
Men and Women Making Friends in Early Modern France
Edited by Lewis Seifert, Brown University, USA and Rebecca Wilkin, Pacific Lutheran University, USA

Men and Women Making Friends in Early Modern France

These essays tell the story of the declining intelligibility of classical models of (male) friendship and of the rising prominence of women as potential friends. Contributors reveal how men and women fashioned gendered selves, and also circumvented gender norms through concrete friendship practices. By showing that the benefits and the risks of friendship are magnified when gender roles and relations are unsettled, the volume highlights the relevance ...

Baptist Women’s Writings in Revolutionary Culture, 1640-1680

Baptist Women’s Writings in Revolutionary Culture, 1640-1680 explores how female Baptists played a crucial role in the group’s formation and growth during the 1640s and 50s by contributing to Baptist theology and politics, and evangelising their followers. Adcock considers and analyses writings by little-studied Baptist as well as separatist women writers, to challenge the assumption that because Baptist women were prevented from speaking in individual ...

Menstruation and Procreation in Early Modern France

Early modern bodies, particularly menstruating and pregnant bodies, were not stable signifiers. Menstruation and Procreation in Early Modern France presents the first full-length discussion of menstruation and its uncertain connections with embodied sex, gender and reproduction in early modern France. It destabilizes long-standing assumptions about the ‘gendering’ of menstruation and raises important questions about the nature of historical evidence ...

Autobiographical Writing by Early Modern Hispanic Women
Autobiographical Writing by Early Modern Hispanic Women
Elizabeth Teresa Howe, Tufts University, USA

Autobiographical Writing by Early Modern Hispanic Women

Women’s life writing in general has too often been ignored, dismissed, or relegated to a separate category in those few studies of the genre that include it. The present work addresses these issues and offers a countervailing argument that focuses on the contributions of women writers to the study of autobiography in Spanish during the early modern period, both in Spain and in Mexico.
