The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe: Writings by and about Women, 1400-1700

The preparation for print and e-book publication of nine early modern English, Spanish, and Portuguese manuscripts by or about women. (24 months)

The project, The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe (website http://www.othervoiceineme.com) seeks support for nine (9) manuscripts to be published in the series by Iter/CRRS at the University of Toronto. These projects span the entire early modern period (ca. 1400-1700) and were composed variously by women and men. The projects fall into several categories: (1) the querelle des femmes (debate about women), 4 texts by men (2 volumes); (2) medical texts, 7 by men, 1 by a woman (3 volumes); (3) political and religious texts by women in English written between 1650 and 1700--Commonwealth and Restoration (3 volumes); and (4) literary texts composed by a Portuguese nun writing variously in Portuguese and Spanish in the late seventeenth and earlier eighteenth centuries, unknown until now in English (1 volume, expandable into 2 if feasible). Taken together these projects illustrate the progressive irruption of women as subjects, actors, and writers in European culture between 1400 and 1700.
