CFP: Women in eighteenth-century Scotland

Title: Women in eighteenth-century Scotland
Editors: Katie Barclay and Debbi Simonton
Submission deadline for proposals: April 18, 2011

Description: »An edited collection, Women in Eighteenth-Century Scotland, seeks to address these questions under the themes of work, politics and culture, and family life. Each section will incorporate new research in the field, highlighting the current state of the field and pointing to directions for future research. The themes have been selected to provide an overview of women’s experiences in different areas of eighteenth-century life, but also to engage with the most vibrant areas of current research into European women’s history. Therefore this collection will provide a comparative discussion for women’s history in different national contexts. In addition to providing new research, each article will actively engage with the current historiography of the period, ensuring that the collection offers not only a substantial contribution to Scottish women’s history but also to Scottish national history and identity.
... The themes of the edition should be interpreted broadly, reflecting the current field, including but not limited to: household work, paid labour, farming, crime, war and violence, reading and writing, education, leisure activities, singing and oral culture, politics, women in public/ private spaces, Enlightenment society, urban/ rural cultures, the body, religion, marriage, children, cohabitation, queer histories, singleness, family networks and more. We are interested in articles that engage with any part of the eighteenth century and the collection hopes to give coverage of the whole century and a variety of social groups.«
