In early modern England, a woman’s travel could lead to figurative movement across social and hierarchical boundaries, challenging existing beliefs and practices. This panel will explore the transformative and subversive effects of travel on early modern women in both fiction and non-fiction. What kinds of journeys did these women embark on between places, spaces, and roles? How does travel shape, transform, and reconfigure power structures? Please send 300 word abstracts to Andrea Fabrizio or Ruth Garcia at FabrizioGarciaabstracts@gmail.com by September 30, 2011.
