Acquainted with Grief: Early Modern Feminist Conceptions of God, Evil, and Theodicy

The following is a plan of action to complete a book manuscript entitled Acquainted with Grief: Early Feminist Conceptions of God, Evil, and Theodicy. This book follows a recent uptick in scholarship on early modern feminism in philosophy, directly responds to contemporary, atheistic feminist critiques of theodicy, and meets a need for a comprehensive analysis of feminist contributions to theodicy. My research bridges gaps between distinct but related humanities disciplines--history of philosophy, philosophy of religion, feminist epistemology, and women's studies and so will attract a broad readership. The fellowship will allow me to participate in several activities that will strengthen my manuscript: to frequent Rice University's rare 18th-19th century works, to participate in the Texas A&M Glasscock Humanities Women's and Gender Studies Working Group, and to study at the 'Woman's Collections' at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
