Aspasia : International Yearbook of Central, Eastern and Southeastern
European Women’s and Gender History
CfP Aspasia 7
In the past two decades, many societies in Central, Eastern, and
Southeastern Europe have experienced an increase in the writing,
publication, and scholarly analysis of autobiographical works by women.
But these works have not been available to a broad international
audience. Volume 7 of Aspasia will focus on the autobiographical
writings of women in CESEE, including their diaries, memoirs and
correspondence. We seek original research based on such sources,
analyzed in the context of the social, political and cultural histories
of the region. We particularly encourage reflection on methodological
and comparative issues. What barriers and incentives have women faced in
recording their stories ? How have these changed over time ? Which women
were able to write such texts, and how or where have their texts or
correspondence been preserved ? How have political realities affected the
shape and reliability of women’s self- representations ? How do women’s
autobiographical writings compare across cultures, across time, and
across different historical contexts ?
In addition to the specific theme of women’s autobiographical writings,
we welcome submissions about all topics related to women’s and gender
history in CESEE on an on-going basis.
Submissions of up to 8,000 words (including notes) can be sent to
Melissa Feinberg (Acting Editor-in-Chief for Aspasia 7) at
firstname.lastname@example.org or to Francisca de Haan at email@example.com.
