Unpaid Annotation
This volume contains the edited proceedings from the 1990 symposium of the same title, focusing on the interdisciplinary study of women in early modern England. After an introduction providing an overview of the current issues shaping Renaissance women's studies, the four parts of the book cover the challenge of making women visible and its political implications in academia; the construction of identity in the representation of women's deaths; an analysis of working-class women; and issues of pedagogy.
