EMWJ is soliciting proposals for reviews of films that highlight the historical presence of early modern women.
Please send us abstracts of 200 words by July 1 that include the names of the films to be reviewed and the theme(s) that connect them. We will respond promptly.
The completed essays will be due October 1, 2015. The cluster of reviews will be published in volume 10, issue 2 in April, 2016.
Our next forum for volume 11, issue 1, to be published October, 2016, will be on women and science.
Topics to be considered may include any subject that addresses the activity of women in science (including medicine), natural philosophy, or natural history broadly conceived.
Forum pieces may consider, for example, women as scientists in any field, the influence of women as patrons of scientists and academies, or the scientific study of gender.
Proposals on other related topics welcome.
Please send us an abstract of 300 words by July 1. We will respond promptly. The completed forum essays, of 3000-3500 words, will be due January 15, 2016.
