HISTORY OF WOMEN IN THE MOUNTAIN SOUTH
We are seeking abstracts or essays that document the history of women in the Mountain South for a book tentatively titled Daughters of Appalachia: A Reader on Women’s History in the Mountain South. Essays may reflect any time period from the frontier era to present day and cover a wide variety of topics that reveal women’s participation and contribution to the history of the region. Topics should include, but are not limited to, race, ethnicity, class, religion, education, politics, healthcare, work (farm and industry), reform, etc.
Essays of particular interest are those that examine the social, political, or economic interaction between women of diverse social, racial, and ethnic groups; comparative studies of women within the region on specific topics; women’s roles in the blending or maintenance of Appalachian and minority cultures (such as Latino or Muslim) in the region; essays that reveal how women challenged or contradicted traditional perceptions of Appalachian women; and essays that examine the social, economic, or political ties of Appalachian women to the nation or world.
A university press has expressed interest in the project and will accept a proposal for review based on the selected abstracts. For consideration, abstracts and a short vita must be received by July 15, 2008.
