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 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.
