Call for Contributors: Race, Religion and Gender in the Colonization of the Americas
I seek contributions for an edited collection dealing with the comparative history of race, religion, and gender in the colonization of the Americas. This volume will form a part of the Ashgate Publishing Company’s, Women and Gender in the Early Modern World Series. The collection will be fully refereed. For more information on the series, please visit the site below.
This collection will be a comparative study of the manner in which gender, race, and religion influenced the formation and maintenance of European control over the resources and populations of the Spanish, Portuguese, French, and English colonies between 1500 and 1800. Contributions should deal with women or gender, colonization, and either race or religious history. I am particularly interested in papers that treat the following topics: indigenous women’s roles as mediators between cultures, efforts to incorporate indigenous and African women into Christian institutions, European attitudes to race mixing, and the immigration of European women. Papers should be based on original research and previously unpublished material.
Proposals consisting in a title, 250-word abstract, and contact information due: September 1, 2003. Final Papers (6, 000 - 7, 000 words) will be required in the fall of 2004. Please send proposals to the address below.
Please direct inquiries via email or phone.
