CALL FOR PAPERS: WIDOWHOOD AND VISUAL CULTURE IN EARLY MODERN EUROPE,
essay collection

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 15, 2001

Abstracts sought for a collection of essays on Widowhood and Visual
Culture in Early Modern Europe. Desirable submissions will engage
some or all of the following questions: How and why has widowhood,
both during and after the mourning ritual, been represented?
Conversely, what does widowhood represent--socially, politically,
psychologically, allegorically? Finally, what is the relationship
between widows--women, at a particular historical moment, caught in a
situation of complex and complicating transformation--and
representation? Essays might address issues such as memory, ritual,
spectacle, patronage, gender (including masculinity), and class.
Interdisciplinary approaches and new methodologies are encouraged.

Please send inquiries or 1-2 page abstract and c.v. by January 15,
2001 to Allison Levy, Department of Art, Newcomb College, Tulane
University, New Orleans, LA 70118; alevy2tulane.edu; 504-865-5238
